A Gordon County man’s stepdaughter has been charged in his death following a shooting Monday afternoon in the Resaca community.

According to Gordon County Sheriff Mitch Ralston, Archie Lynn DeFoor, 47, of 1071 Resaca-Nicklesville Road, was found dead of gunshot wounds after deputies responded to a 911 call from the residence.

Deputies questioned two other family members at the scene and found the weapon believed to have been used in the shooting during a search of the home.

After questioning the witnesses at the scene, detectives arrested DeFoor’s stepdaughter, Alison Mary Gresham, 16, and charged her with DeFoor’s murder.

She was charged as an adult in Gordon County Superior Court and is being held at a Regional Youth Detention Center pending bail proceedings.

DeFoor’s body was taken to the state crime lab in Decatur for a post-mortem examination.
