BRUNSWICK, Ga. – Bryce Sasser, the son of a former Glynn County lieutenant who shot and killed his estranged wife and her boyfriend, was arrested and charged with reckless conduct.

The arrest warrant shows Bryce Sasser failed to report that his father, former Lieutenant Corey Sasser, had taken guns from his home, despite knowing he was banned from having firearms by the Glynn Magistrate Court.

Police said after Corey Sasser killed Katie Kettles and John Hall Jr. on June 28 inside a McIntosh County home, he led officers back to his Brunswick home where he turned the gun on himself.
