KNOXVILLE – A joint investigation with Special Agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and deputies with the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office has resulted in the arrest of an Andersonville man who is charged in the shooting death of his girlfriend’s mother.

At the request of 7th District Attorney General Dave Clark, TBI Special Agents, working alongside deputies with the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office, began investigating the death of 66-year-old Karen Zahrobsky on the morning of June 10th. The victim’s daughter called 911 to report a disturbance with her boyfriend at 460 Lone Mountain Road in Andersonville and indicated that her mother was injured. When deputies arrived at the scene, they found the victim deceased from a gunshot wound. During the course of the investigation, Agents developed information that the daughter’s boyfriend, James William McMillan, was the individual responsible for the death of Karen Zahrobsky.

On Wednesday, McMillan was taken into custody by deputies with the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office. Late last night, TBI Agents obtained warrants charging the 48-year old with one count of First Degree Murder, one count of Voluntary Manslaughter and one count of Aggravated Assault. McMillan was booked into the Anderson County Detention Facility, where he is being held on a $625,000 bond.
