Desmond Brown, 29 of Rome, Georgia, was booked into jail here in Cherokee County, on Capital Murder charges this week.
Back on October 10th, 37 year old Devin Watts, and Christopher Pullen, age 24 – both from Rome – were booked in at the Cherokee County Detention Center, on charges of Capital Murder, in connection with the 2020 double homicide of two half-sisters, and at that time Desmond Brown, also facing charges in that case had yet to be extradited back to Alabama.
They’re accused of killing Vanita Nicole Richardson, age 18, and 30 year old Truvenia Campbell over a misplaced wallet. The victim’s bodies were later tossed off a bridge in Rome.
The case was moved to Cherokee County, after evidence pointed to the actual killings happening just inside the Alabama state line.
According to earlier reports cell phone records and statements given to investigators showed that all five subjects rode to Alabama and somewhere along the road back to Rome – Brown, who was behind the wheel, pulled over and wanted to search the two women – because he believed they had stolen his wallet during a party at his home.
Ms. Campbell reportedly put up a fight and was shot, Ms. Richardson was then shot as well. Wilson testified that Brown shot Campbell several times, then shot the younger sister, Richardson, as she attempted to comply.
Brown, upon his extradition back to Alabama, was booked in at the Cherokee County Detention Center just prior to 12:00 noon Tuesday; both Watts and Pullen are still being held locally,
