Newton man charged with killing fiancee

NEWTON (KWWL) -- A Newton man is charged with First Degree Murder in the death of his fiancee.

Police were called to a home in the 200 block of east 19th St. around 7:00 p.m. Saturday.  When officers arrived, they found 43-year-old Angelina Ancer dead inside the home with gunshot wounds.

Investigators say 42-year-old Jay Mack was arguing with Ancer, when they believe Mack went to the garage, came back into the house with a gun, and shot Ancer.

Jay Mack willingly went with officers for an interview.  Police later arrested him and he was charged him with First Degree Murder.

Mach was being held in the Jasper County Jail.
