April 10, 2014

Funeral services have been set for the 10-year-old shot and killed Sunday night in Orange County.

A printed obituary indicates that funeral services will be held for George Allen "Bubbie" Toombs on Friday at 3 P.M. at the Preddy Funeral Home Chapel in Orange. The family will receive friends from 6 until 8 P.M. Thursday at the funeral home.

According to police, Toombs was killed by a gunshot wound. Charges have been filed against his mother, 36-year-old Tina Marie Toombs. She is facing felony child abuse and neglect charges and has been released on five thousand dollars bond.

Tina Toombs fiance, 37-year-old Billy Joe Lee has been charged with felony child abuse and neglect, shooting in the commission of a felony, discharging a firearm within the home with the death of an individual, and child endangerment.

In an Orange County courtroom earlier this week, Lee denied admitting to investigators he shot the child on accident. Lee is being held without bond. His attorney has requested another bond hearing, that will be heard on April 21.
