Chatham County police officers were called to the 100 block of Wisteria Court around 6 pm on December 31, 2018, "to conduct a welfare check after reports that the resident had not been seen for several days," police report.

When officers arrived on scene, "a person in the residence, later identified as Victor Michael Alexander, barricaded himself in the house," police say.

Chatham County Police asked the Savannah Police Department’s S.W.A.T and H.R.T. teams to assist in the resolution of the standoff. "A little after 11 pm, Alexander was taken into custody without further incident," police report.

"While walking the perimeter of the property, police found Doris Alexander deceased. Victor Alexander has been charged with Aggravated Assault and Concealing a Death of Another," police say.
