CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- A Navy spokesman says special investigators are re-examining evidence that could lead to an investigation into the suspicious death of a man who was the third husband of a Georgia grandmother who has five dead husbands in five states.

Investigators with the Naval Criminal Investigative Service's cold case squad are reviewing documents related to the death of Petty Officer Richard Sills.

NCIS spokesman Ed Buice said Thursday agents will decide soon whether to open a full-scale investigation.

Sills' death was ruled a suicide in 1967, when he was married to Betty Neumar. She was arrested last year in North Carolina in the 1986 death of her fourth husband, Harold Gentry.
