Family of man killed 34 years ago planning vigil 10/17/2017 6:37 am PDT Comments WGCL via WGCL: SPALDING COUNTY, Ga. -- (WGCL) -- A Spalding County family has waited nearly 35 years for justice in the killing of their loved one. Investigators made a string of arrests in the murder of Timothy Coggins late last week. The family says they hadn't talked about the case in years. Now, it's all coming back. “It was pretty much wow, pretty much wow,” said his niece Heather Coggins. Coggins says she didn't know if the day would ever come, but always hoped it would. It was Thursday Oct. 12 when the sheriff called to say two were charged with killing her uncle 34 years ago.
