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

Is there any one at all that still lives around here that thinks that the Bamburg's didn't commit this crime under premeditation and cold blooded murder and without giving any thought to what would happen to the two boys being right there when the act was carried out. If there is, you are a sick sole. You need help, now before you think up some monstrous nightmare to top this one.

And to think they want to take our guns away so animals like these can keep them. Not in my life time.

Did none of you watch the programming on tv where they did convict them for murdering her? They timed it from the spot she was killed to the sheriff's office then, got bullets and stuff out of the chicken coop. They stole his brother's gun and he had reported it missing and thats when they killed her. Not so innocent now are they?

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

You are obviiously related to these two murdering demons. There was nothing one sided about the trial ! Damon and Sonya ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO STOOD TO GAIN ANYTHING FROM NIKKI'S DEATH!!! They took away her mothers only dughter and those kids mama. They are still breathing the same air as the rest of us. They should have to die for what they did ! Get your story straight ! We've heard their side of the story and they hung themselves. Prison is too good for them ! What are you doing...stalking this page so you can reopen old wounds. We are almost to the anniversary of this horrific and evil deed so I guess you are keeping tabs so you can stir it up again. Get on with your low life and let this topic rest !

Are you serious?? How can you be so passionate about this when you obviously don't have a clue what you are talking about! Maybe the fact that he ADMITTED doing it had alot to do with the conviction?? I think you need to take a seat and read up on the facts before opening your mouth! Stupid Bitch!

Hey no one said they admitted it you stupid arse. Maybe you need to take a seat on reality and listen to the actual facts. How could people like a father say to his daughter to STOP driving? Tell me what HUMAN being with a heart would say that? Wanna tell me why would there be a report that the people who were convicted of this 'crime' be at a police station at the same time this 'crime' went down? Hmm.. sounds fishy since you cant not be in two places at once with a car cops are searching..if you think that they did do it you are bloody retarded. There is no evidence that they even touched her after the reportings from stories say they left the store after she left in a differnet direction with kids in the car. Hmm. Strange. Hmm sounds like a drug deal on Allison end.

I'm not certain if anyone is still subscribing to this, but I've only recently learned of this horrible event. I lived in Vidalia and knew this family.

Sadly, I reported Damon and his mother to the Child Welfare office for abuse to the Nikki's oldest son. I never witnessed Damon hit the children but he spoke to them with a demonic tone which left the children frightened and mute. I did witness Sonya beat Nikki's oldest son, which left severe bruising and caused blood to surface from the toddlers knees to his shoulder blades. After this beating, the toddler was forced by his grandmother to silence his cries and to sit straight in his seat while a room of his peers looked to him. I could not reach him in time to save him and I will never forget holding that sweet boy in my arms to protect and comfort him. I reported the Bamberg's immediately to the authorities hoping that thy would take the children immediately from their home. However, the Child Welfare office did not investigate or follow up for more than two weeks after all wounds had healed. Apparently, Damon's mother worked for the Child Welfare office prior so they felt no need to move forward with a timely investigation. Needless to say, they dismissed the case. Nikki's parents should file suit against the Child Welfare office for neglecting this case.

I actually feared for my safety and the safety of my family and moved to another state. I pleaded with Nikki to leave Damon for her safety and the safety of her tiny children. She must have also feared for her life. Damon and his mother were evil human beings and I am relieved to hear that they were found guilty and will be serving life in prison.

My heart and condolences go out to Nikki's boys and to her family. My heart is broken.

I just heard this story, these 2 freaks were having an incestuous relationship! I am glad they got life plus 30 years! Figures they're from the south, freaking inbreds. I hope they are miserable as hell each moment of their pathetic lives.

I never said I was in the room I was in the next room and heard what was said. The sheriffs office in Mt. Vernon is very small....with thin walls...I am glad the boys are doing great. But one question though....if you believe that Damon killed Nikki to get custody of the boys, what was the point...if he did do it (which he did not!!!!) he would never have gotten the boys because he was bound to get caught...so why do it to get the boys if he would never get them? That does not make since at all.....Oh by the way he did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....did not do it....DID NOT DO IT!!!!!!!!!

Definitely one bizarre mother and son. Just when you think you've heard the worst another case comes up even sicker. What a sad ending for Nikki getting sucked in to their lives. I hope whom ever the children are with they're living in a safe caring place and they will not be exposed to anything bad for the rest of their lives.

The only injustice done here is the two werent executed holding hands... That was the most twisted story i have ever heard ever... The incest, the control and anger came straight from the devils butthole. I hope they both rot there as well.
