UPDATE: The sheriff's office says Hoback is in custody after a deputy spotted him on Robinson Hollow Road and placed him under arrest.‬

The Giles County, Tennessee sheriff confirmed that Hoback was released Monday afternoon from the Giles County Jail on a $6,500 bond for a burglary charge. He was also already out of jail on a separate $75,000 bond for attempted murder.

The sheriff did not confirm if either of those charges are connected to the case in Limestone County. He did say it's an ongoing investigation and they are working with the Limestone County Sheriff's Office on this case. 

FROM EARLIER:

The Limestone County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a deadly shooting that happened overnight.

The shooting was reported around 4 a.m. in the 19000 block of Cave Branch Road. The sheriff’s office says deputies found a woman dead of an apparent gunshot wound at a home.

Samuel Hoback, 21, is a suspect in the case and is wanted for questioning in the investigation, according to Stephen Young with the Limestone County Sheriff's Office. The sheriff’s office says he was last seen driving a black Saturn sedan, and both he and the victim are from Prospect, Tennessee.

The sheriff’s office says the victim had moved in with friends on Cave Branch Road “allegedly because Hoback had shot up her residence in Prospect about a week ago and she was reportedly in fear for her life.”

Young said they are working with the Giles County Sheriff's Office in Tennessee and that's where they heard about the reports from Prospect, Tennessee.
