Back to Florida, and Not for a Vacation

By  | 

A Florida woman arrested last Friday in Boaz in Wood County is headed back to her home state.

Fifty-nine-year-old Martha Beatty had been wanted on a homicide warrant from Lake County, Florida. She agreed Tuesday to waive extradition and be returned to the Sunshine State.

The body of her husband, Bradford Beatty, was found buried behind his Florida home some time after he was shot twice in the head.

Police say she had been living in Parkersburg with family members since last fall.
