Autopsy confirms stabbing

Robin Reeves, the 35-year-old Thomson woman who was slain in her home this week, will be buried today.

Funeral services will be at 11 a.m. at Holy Cross Episcopal Church on Fluker Street in Thomson. Burial will be at Westview Cemetery.

On Friday, the Georgia Crime Lab confirmed what law enforcement officials in Thomson suspected had caused Ms. Reeves' death. She died of multiple stab wounds.

The crime lab reported the autopsy results by phone, said Special Agent Mike Seigler of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation's Thomson office. A detailed written report of the findings will come later.

The GBI and the Thomson Police Department have received dozens of leads concerning Ms. Reeves' death, which occurred at her Gordon Street home Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning, Agent Seigler said.

Meanwhile, evidence gathered from the residence has been sent to the crime lab in Atlanta for processing, he said.

Also on Friday, felony stalking and harassing phone call charges against Ms. Reeves' former husband, Robert Standridge, 35, were continued until next month in McDuffie County Superior Court.

A closed custody hearing for Ms. Reeves' and Mr. Standridge's 16-month-old son, Joseph, was held Friday with Department of Family and Children's Services personnel.

The couple divorced in September.

Ms. Reeves' body was discovered in her home in the 200 block of Gordon Street about 9:30 a.m. Wednesday by her mother, Faye Reeves, who lives next door. Joseph was found unharmed in his crib in a bedroom.

Police say Ms. Reeves was attacked and killed in the hallway of her home after she returned from church Tuesday.

Ms. Reeves was secretary to the vice president of the Thomson branch of Augusta Technical College.

She was also the mother of a 3-year-old daughter, Hannah Neville, from a previous marriage.
