What Do Police Know So Far About the Woman's Death?

Norway Police first received a report of a disturbance at the Greenwood Road Home shortly after noon on Friday, July 7th. A third party told authorities that they thought a resident of the home may have been killed by her husband.

When police officers arrived at the residence they found Barbara St. George, 60, deceased in the driveway. Her body was located under the wheel of her husband's pickup truck. Also found on the property was her husband, Andrew St. George, who officials say had superficial injuries. According to WGME-TV, Andrew had called his son and confessed to hitting Barbara with the truck and stabbing her. St. George then told his son that he was going to kill himself, as well. Andrew had several knives when police officers found him and he threw a phone at them before running behind a camper. Officials say they used 'less-than lethal munitions' to take him into custody.

Police say the couple has been separated for two years and they've been fighting over who owns the property in Norway.

Barbara's body was examined at the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, who confirmed her identity and determined that her death was a homicide. So far, officials have not released how she died.

Was the Husband Hurt?

Andrew was taken to Stephens Memorial Hospital where he was treated for minor injuries to his neck and wrists and released. Maine State Police Detectives interviewed St. George and later arrested him on a charge of murder. He's being held at the Oxford County Jail and is expected to make his initial court appearance this week.

This case remains under investigation.
