CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN)– A suspect has been charged in the death of one of two people during a home invasion in Clarksville.

Clarksville Police said George Northington, 34, has been charged with Criminal Homicide in the death of Deontrea Milligan who lived at the home.

The incident happened at a home in the 1000 Block of Dandelion Drive around 11:45 p.m. on Friday.

Police say Northington was one of at least two men who entered the home through an unlocked door while multiple adults and two children were inside.

An altercation took place with the intruders and shot were fired.

Police said Nicoli Jefferies, 37, was also found dead inside the home.

Officers said he was dressed in dark clothing with his hands and face covered, except for his eyes.

Detectives also found a cell phone at the crime scene that belonged to Northington, which they said he used just before and right after the intrusion.

Officers said Jefferies and Northington were known associates.

Clarksville Police are still searching for 34-year-old Richard Kenny Woodson who has three Aggravated Assault warrants for his arrest that are unrelated to the homicide case.

Police believe Woodson has information about the homicide case, and that he is aware detectives want to speak with him but has not come in.
