Cochran Chief: Domestic Fight Caused Fatal Wreck

A Cochran man is charged with causing a fatal wreck by ramming his wife's car after an argument.

Cochran Police Chief James Sanders says James Tripp faces several charges in the case, including DUI, murder and aggravated assault.

He said Tripp's niece, 22-year-old Tiffany Herman, died in the two-car wreck.

Car parts and plastic still line the side of Limestone Road in Cochran, pieces left behind from a car wreck that totaled Cindy Tripp's SUV.

It happened around 2 p.m. Wednesday, according to Sanders.

He says Tripp and his wife, Cindy Tripp, have had a series of marital disputes, and Cindy Tripp moved out of the home recently.

He said she returned Wednesday, believing that James Tripp was in alcohol rehab.

They argued in the home, Cindy Tripp left and drove away, and James Tripp chased her, Sanders said.

MGC Listed Among Public Four-Year Schools with Lowest Tuition Rate

(Cochran, GA) – Middle Georgia College has been included among the U.S. Department of Education’s list of public, four-year institutions with the lowest tuition among the 16 Southern Regional Education Board states, as well as the list of the lowest net price tuition increase from 2008 to 2010.  The list was included on the US DOE’s College Affordability and Transparency Report in an effort to be open about higher education.

Between 1994 and 2011, the average tuition increase in the University System was 5 percent at two-year colleges, 7 percent at comprehensive universities, and 8 percent at research universities. Since state support has dropped $1 billion over the last decade, state support per student decreased to $3,000. But, tuition has increased only $2,316 per student on average. In addition, Georgia ranked seventh lowest in tuition and mandatory fees for public four- year institutions in 2009-2010.
