HART (WKZO) -- This sounds like a prime time murder, one of those cases that wind up profiled on Network TV.
City Councilman Timothy Shannon in Hart, Michigan in Oceana County has been arrested for allegedly drowning his wife, Lee-Ann in their bathtub back on December 29th.
He initially called it in as an accident, but Lt. Craig Mast says there were problems with his story, that just didn’t match the facts.
They eventually concluded that her death was no accident and that Shannon had been cheating on his wife with another woman.
They brought Shannon in for questioning Tuesday, confronted him with the inconsistencies and arrested him.
Hart City Police passed the investigation to Oceana County because he is a city official. They had been married 6 years and have two young children.
