More details emerge in Perry County homicide case

A Perry County man who has been charged with criminal homicide in his wife’s death had recently lost his job, contemplated suicide and planned to get a divorce from her, according to arrest papers state police at Newport filed yesterday.

Police wrote that they found the body of Sherie Deardorf-Buck, 47, under brush about 200 feet from her home in the 1900 block of Honeysuckle Hollow Road in Saville Township Wednesday. She had suffered multiple gunshot wounds, they wrote.

George Edward Buck, 47, was arrested at the home Wednesday and is being held in Perry County Prison without bail pending a preliminary hearing in November.
