TLC’s ‘90 Day Fiancé’ star Douglas Wooten charged with murder, armed robbery and child cruelty after man found shot dead

A FORMER cast member of TLC's "90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days" has been arrested for murder after turning himself in.

Douglas Wooten, 39, was booked into Jeff Davis County Jail in Georgia on January 7 after a warrant was issued for his arrest.

He faces charges of felony murder, home invasion, armed robbery and cruelty to children in the second degree, in connection to the death of 54-year-old Marcos Ramirez, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigations.

Authorities responded to a home in Hazelhurst after reports of a shooting on January 4, before finding Ramirez dead with multiple gunshot wounds.

The following day an arrest warrant was issued for Wooten, who made his debut on Season 3 of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days which aired in August 2019.

Wooten appeared as "DJ Doug" in episode 2 alongside reality star Angela Deem, working as an event coordinator at the Cotton Patch wedding venue in Hazelhurst.

Deem and husband-to-be Michael Ilesanmi were awaiting response to their K-1 visa application, and the episode sees her tour the venue and receive advice from Wooten about her upcoming nuptials.

Wooten assured Deem the venue could fulfil her 90-day time frame, telling her: "The good thing is we can plan spur of the moment."

He told cameras, "pick your sin and I’ll help you accommodate to it," before later condemning Deem for wanting "caviar and champagne on a malt liquor budget."

He said: "You can’t have a fairytale wedding tomorrow and expect it all to happen for $100."

Three other men were also arrested in connection with the murder, according to authorities, although the relationship between the males remains unclear.

Ramirez's body was transported to the GBI Medical Examiners Office for an autopsy to take place.

The murder investigation remains ongoing.

Wooten is not the first 90 Day Fiancé star to have a run-in with the law.

Larissa Lima has been arrested for domestic violence on three seperate occasions, once just five days before her wedding to Colt Johnson.

Geoffrey Pashcel is facing trial after he pleaded not guilty to domestic assault, interference with emergency calls, vandalism, and aggravated kidnapping of his ex-girlfriend.
