A man has been charged with killing his wife in Marietta.

Sunday morning, Cobb County police were called to a shooting in the 4200 block of Bishop Lake Road.

Officers said David York Jr., 66, called 911 and said his wife had been shot.

Detectives arrived at the home and discovered the body of Lynn York, 66, of Marietta.

David York soon admitted he shot and killed his wife, police said.

Rich Kutch, who lives nearby, said he never had any idea something was wrong.

"It's upsetting, very disturbing. It's really bizarre," Kutch said.

Kutch, who said he would see the Yorks at neighborhood parties, thought they were a loving couple.

"They were very kind people. He seemed like a regular guy, a nice fellow," Kutch said.

According to police, David York has been charged with aggravated assault and murder. He remains at the Cobb County Adult Detention Center without bond.

Police have not released a motive for the shooting.
