When deputies arrived, they found Perala dead in the home. Chambless told them he was in another room and heard voices and a gunshot.

When he came out, he found the victim, Chambless claimed, according to the sheriff’s office.

However, investigators found evidence that disproved his story, and a gun was found where police first saw Chambless.
