He was sentenced to 40 years in prison, but two years were suspended, leaving 38 to serve.

On June 9, 2021, Tee Swims was shot three times after a heated argument by her husband, who claimed during the trial that he pulled the trigger in self-defense after his wife lunged at him with a knife. She had a wound to the chest, a wound to her right hip area, and a wound to the left thigh.

Tee, a teacher with the South Panola School District, was found in the house she shared with her husband in The Lakes. Swims remained in the house with his wife’s lifeless body for more than two days before calling 911.

He was arrested on June 11, 2021.
