Couple convicted in 2007 killing may get a divorce
A Glynn County couple who was arrested and convicted in the kidnapping, molestation and murder of a 6-year-old boy in March 2007 may be getting a divorce.

Peggy Edenfield, 62, is seeking a divorce from her husband, David Edenfield, 63, in papers filed in Glynn County Superior Court.

The two are separately incarcerated while they each serve sentences for convictions in the brutal killing of Christopher Michael Barrios, the C.B. Greer Elementary student whose body was found in a trash bag on Canal Road a week after he was kidnapped from his Horseshoe Lane residence in Canal Road Mobile Home Park.

David Edenfield, 63, was sentenced to death in 2009 for killing and molesting Christopher.

Peggy Edenfield pleaded guilty but mentally retarded on Sept. 1, 2011, to charges of false imprisonment, child molestation, cruelty to children in the second degree, concealing the death of another and tampering with evidence. She was sentenced to 60 years in prison.

Peggy did not physically kill the child but watched while performing a sex act on herself.

George Edenfield, the couple's 36-year-old son who is also accused in the murder, was found to be mentally incapable of assisting lawyers in his defense. He is being held in a state mental facility for continuing evaluations to determine if he will be able to go to trial.

In the May 22 divorce filing, which Peggy Edenfield reportedly prepared herself, the wife of David Edenfield indicated she had no legal disability.

She is also seeking to retain her maiden name, which is Depratter.
