A Georgia woman who supported gun control during her 2017 election campaign for Congress has been charged with murder after her former campaign treasurer was found shot to death.

Kellie Collins, of Thomason, turned herself into the McDuffie County Sheriff’s Office last week after police in Aiken County, South Carolina found the body of Curtis Cain, who was the treasurer of Collins’s campaign.

Cain did not show up for work Tuesday, which led to deputies going to his home to see what was wrong. Police found him dead from an apparent gunshot wound, WSB reported.

Cain died due to loss of blood after being shot, according to Aiken County Coroner Tim Carlton, according to the Augusta Chronicle.

Cain appears to have died on Saturday.

Cain’s blue Subaru Legacy was missing, leading police to charge Collins with grand larceny in addition to murder.
