A northeast Georgia couple celebrated its first wedding anniversary on a Friday. On Saturday, police say, the husband murdered the wife.

Christopher Snow, 31, is charged with stabbing Casey Allen on April 15. The couple had a baby boy last December.

“How could you do this? It’s so confusing,” Allen's sister, Tiffany Agee, told Fox News.

Snow reportedly tried to explain some of it to his aunt. She told Gainesville Police that he claimed to have a fight with Allen, then couldn't find his wife.

Authorities found Allen, 32, dead in the couple's apartment. She reportedly was beaten, with her face and torso stabbed.

Agee told WXIA-TV that she learned the news from Allen's first husband.

“He said, 'Casey is dead.' And I just... threw my phone and I started screaming,” Agee recalled.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Snow was arrested Wednesday, April 19, days after crashing his car into the median along Interstate 85 southwest of Gainesville. Police suspect it was a suicide attempt.

Hall County Jail records reviewed by Front Page Detectives Thursday indicate Snow is charged not only with murder, but aggravated battery and aggravated assault. He is held without bond.

Allen had three children from an earlier husband. All the children were with relatives while the couple marked their anniversary weekend.

A GoFundMe account set up to pay for Allen's family expenses had more than $7,100 in donations Thursday morning.
