LEXINGTON — A man who abducted his 6-year-old son from a Holmes County home has surrendered to authorities.
Highway Patrol spokesman Warren Strain says 43-year-old Terrell Milton Adams called the sheriff’s office today and told deputies where he was and he was arrested. The boy, 6-year-old Sirvontez Adams, was not harmed.
Strain says Terrell Adams fled with the boy Monday night from their home in Lexington.
Holmes County Sheriff Willie March says Terrell Adams is accused of forcing 31-year-old Coretta Andrews into his car at a Dollar General store in Lexington Monday about 8 p.m. March says Andrews’ body was later found shot inside the car on Ebeneezer Road. He says she had been shot to death.
March says the couple was living together and Sirvontez Adams is their son.
