During the Custody Battle in Georgia, a Man Allegedly Killed His Daughter’s Mother and Her Boyfriend
Authorities in Newton County, North Carolina, say that on Sunday night, a man shot and killed the mother of his kid and her boyfriend while negotiating custody. The sheriff’s office reported that around 6:15 p.m., deputies were dispatched to a residence on Pebble Lane, located within a few miles of Covington. There they discovered a guy and a lady who had both been shot.
According to the sheriff’s office, the man and his girlfriend had parked their car outside the woman’s house in preparation for a custody exchange with the woman’s 15-year-old daughter, but the girl refused to enter the house with her father.
According to a press release, the woman’s father, Marquez Smith, entered the home, obtained a weapon, and then exited the building to shoot both the woman and her boyfriend. Authorities say the car then either rolled down the street as the pair tried to flee or crashed into a mailbox and trash cans located about three houses down the road. There was an official death determination for both individuals there.
The sheriff’s office reported that the adolescent was unharmed. She is at home with her relatives. According to the press release, after Smith fled the scene, he made plans to surrender himself to the sheriff’s office at about midnight.
He’s been arrested on multiple counts, including murder, aggravated assault, second-degree cruelty to minors, parole violation, and firearm possession while committing a felony, and is currently being held in the Newton County jail.
