PORT WENTWORTH, Ga. (WSAV) – GBI is investigating what led up to a domestic dispute that turned deadly. 

Early Saturday morning, Port Wentworth Police arrested 42-year-old Christopher Scott. He is charged with murder and aggravated assault. He was denied bond and is being held in the Chatham County Jail.
