Police: Man Drove into Macon Home, Killed Girlfriend's Mother

What began as an argument in the front lawn of 48-year-old Charlane Cowan's home, ended with her losing her life.

Saturday evening neighbors around Cowan said they heard her and her daughter's boyfriend, 23-year-old Grelan Muse, fighting outside for about an hour.

Jasmine Reeze saw the confrontation from her window. 

"I was trying not to hear it, so I played music," Reeze said. "Then I hear his tires screech so, I pause my music and look out the window, and he's backing up."

Reeze says Muse had gotten into his truck and pretended to ram the front of Cowan's home two or three times until, finally, he hit Cowan and sent her through the wall of her home, killing her.

Brenda Reeze has been a neighbor of Cowan for over a year and says she ran to her friend's side. "I went over there when she was lying on the front porch," said Brenda. "I took a towel and tried to assist, wiped some blood off her face and stuff."

Those who heard the argument aren't sure what it was about but, suspect it had to do with Cowan's two-year-old granddaughter, who was standing right inside the doorway.

"The baby was on the front porch too," Brenda said. "But God was on her side, because she didn't get hit."

Jasmine Reeze says after Muse crashed through front of the home, he backed up and drove off. But according to Bibb County Jail records, he was arrested around 5:30 p.m. 

According to a Macon Police Department news release, Muse is charged with felony murder, criminal damage, battery-family violence, aggravated assault, and cruelty toward a child.

Brenda Reeze says Cowan was a good person, and will be missed.

Bibb County Corner Leon Jones pronounced Cowan dead just before 6 p.m. at the Medical Center of Central Georgia. An autopsy has been planned for Monday.
