The wife of a Georgia man who died after being charged in connection with the US Capitol riot called 911 to report that there was “blood everywhere” — and his body was found in their basement, according to a report.

Christopher Stanton Georgia, 53, who had been charged with unlawful entry and violating a citywide curfew that took effect at 6 p.m. Wednesday, the day of the siege, died at his home in Alpharetta on Saturday.

Family members at the Alpharetta home were described by police as “extremely distressed,” according to documents obtained by the Daily Mail.

Georgia’s wife called 911 to report her find on Saturday morning, the news outlet reported.

Police removed two semiautomatic SKS rifles from the home, officials said.

An Alpharetta police report did not list a cause of death, but said Georgia’s death was “under investigation.” 

He was accused of trying to “enter certain property, that is, the United States Capitol Grounds, against the will of the United States Capitol Police,” according to documents from the Superior Court of DC.

The filings state that Georgia and several others stayed out past the curfew and failed to disperse after officers ordered them to scram around 7:15 p.m.

Unlawful entry is a misdemeanor that carries a maximum penalty of up to 180 days in jail and/or a $1,000 fine in DC.
