The trial of three men accused of murdering two Rome, Georgia sisters has now been delayed until November.
According to a report in the Rome News-Tribune – that trial was delayed following a continuance was granted (in May of this year).
Desmond Brown, Lashawn Watts and Christopher Pullen stand accused of murdering Armuchee High School student Vanita Richardson and Truvenia Campbell following an argument regarding a lost wallet. Brown accused the sisters of stealing the wallet during at a party in Rome and he then drove the two sisters here to Cherokee County, (Alabama), where authorities believe the two women were murdered. The wallet was later found behind a television at Brown’s residence.
According to Cherokee County (Alabama) court records – in January this year (2022) Watts filed a motion to delay his trial and a motion to be transported to future court dates – after the sheriff’s office was reportedly “unable” to take him to a January 12th court date.
