Midstate mother shot dead after bringing children to estranged husband

Jan 22, 2008 | Posted by: The Macon Telegraph | Full story: The Macon Telegraph

“She was actually on the cell phone with her daddy and she said, 'Somebody has shot my glass out,'”

A mother was fatally shot in the head in her car Friday in Jeff Davis County after meeting with her estranged husband in Uvalda to drop off her two young children.

Allison Nicole Bamberg, 28, of Baxley was found slumped over in her Malibu sedan near the gas lines by the Altamaha River bridge on Ga. 135 at about 6:10 p.m. Friday, said Jeff Davis Sheriff Jimmy Boatright.

Her estranged husband, Damon James Bamberg, 30, and his mother, Sonya Lou Bamberg, 52, both of Mount Vernon, are charged with murder, Boatright said. Read more

This has to be the worse crime ever heard. The ex husband should be ashamed of himself for doing somethng like this and his mother in on it also. What was so wrong about it he had the kids in the car with him, and they saw something like this, and they will remember this for the rest of their lives. He thought of no one but himself he ought to be hanged. What the matter he didnt want to payalimony or child support. Whomever gets custody of the kids should not let him see the kids again.

I have known all of these that were involved in this incident and still find it hard to believe that it had to go this far. I have known Damon and his mother Sonya for going on 10 years and I knew Nikki for about 5 years. They are still in jail in jeff davis county and I will be shocked if they get a bond. I can not believe that anyone would think they could get away with this so easy. I heard the back glass of the vehicle was shot out on the bridge, I assume he probably thought she would wreck and go off the bridge and they would just go on home to Mt. Vernon like nothing happened. I Pray that Nicoles family can find justice in this crime...

Nikki was my best friend. Damon and Sonya put her through a living hell. I can not say that I am surprised by his or her actions in doing such a horrific thing, I just wish it had not ended this way. Those poor babies are the ones who are having to suffer and he just didn't care what they would have to go through the rest of their lives knowing he did this to their mommy. I pray that God gives the just wrath that these two deserve.

I know Bamburg, his mom, and sort of knew his wife

I would just like to point out that everyone is innocent until proven guilty in this country, and from what i'm hearing about the investigation, they don't exactly have a mountain of evidence against Damon and his mom. I'm willing to wait and see what comes out at the trial before i judge anyone; i wish some of you would try to do the same

Give me a break. They are guilty as sin. They will not be able to hide behind the Bible or their Church. If they didn't have enough evidence to charge them they would be walking the street free.

To the idiot from Folkston that says that they are innocent and that they were at the Sherrifs office when this happened. You need to do more research. This happened just minutes after she dropped the kids with them in uvalda. He went to the sherrif after the fact to cover up. They are both gutless cowards that will burn in hell. You must be a friend of theirs and that would make you fall in the same catogory as them. Maybe that is the reason you don't post a name. You don't want everyone to know who the idiot is.

What rock did you bump your head on? Of course they were at the sheriff's office,they were trying to establish an alibi.Oops I guess it did'nt work.The evil in that family runs wide and deep but as sure as there is a God in Heaven they will pay for this one.The day that Nikki married Damon Bamberg she signed her own death warrant.She was terrified of him and his wicked mother.Nikki had a kind spirit and loved her children dearly , there is no one else in the world who would have wanted her dead or who would have benefited in any way with her gone except for this deadly duo and their maniacal clan.Sit back and watch the wheels of justice turn and then see who's innocent jello brain.

Learn how to spell you hillbillies! Evil is spelled with an "i" and Aloveone spelled it wrong twice.
monique newkirk: "What the matter" Learn how to type.
Marty: I noticed you didn't post your last name, coward.
If you believe everything you read in the papers you are suckers.
I believe in due process and the system, if he is guilty we will find out.
Otherwise learn how to type and spell.

This is to the righteous yankee from New York. I see that you didn't put even your first name. You are just like all other yankees that I have ever met, They all think that they Know everything when they don't. I know alot more about this case than you ever will. You need to mind your own business and worry about how you can stay in New York where all yankees belong.

Marty, I read the papers just like the other posters read the papers, I just believe in the system, if found guilty, he's guilty. If found innocent, he's innocent.
Now take your southern lynch mob and go in-bread in your back woods with your sister/mother/aunt or whatever weird relative she is.

Yea...that's exactly what we need to do is relive the Civil War on a message board devoted to a good friend of mine who was taken from her family, friends and, above all, children by a man who should have been in prison a long time ago. How dare ANYONE stand up for him. If any of you that think he is guilty knew everything that happened between them, you would know otherwise. I hope both of them rot in prison for the rest of their pathetic lives. Furthermore, to those of you who "believe in the system", I suppose you also believe that O.J. Simpson didn't kill his wife either, do you? Get a life.

For those of you that didn't notice, yes, I meant "for those of you who think he is INNOCENT". I know the bastard is guilty and I hope he burns in Hell for what he has done.
