Macon Judicial Circuit District Attorney David Cooke will not seek the death penalty against Stephen McDaniel in the Lauren Giddings killing. Below are the details in the remaining pending death penalty cases in the district:
The killing of Kimberly McKenzie
Alexandria Renee Scott and Justin Terrell Grable are accused of using a weapon to force their way into 38-year-old Kimberly McKenzies car Jan. 26, 2011, near the intersection of Camellia Circle and Ignico Drive in Warner Robins.
Authorities say that once in the car, Grable drove McKenzie and Scott on Ga. 247 through Houston County and into Bibb County. They turned onto Feagin Road and went to a nearby field, where McKenzie was shot, authorities have said.
Scott and Grable also are accused of taking cash from McKenzie at gunpoint.
McKenzie died of a single gunshot to her upper right leg. Her car was found abandoned at the intersection of Key Street and Eisenhower Parkway.
The killings of Lillian Graves and Agnes Stewart
Lillian Walker is accused in the stabbing deaths of her 85-year-old aunt, Lillian Graves, and her 65-year-old cousin, Agnes Stewart, both of Fort Valley, in June 2009.
In the attack on the women in their home on Fort Valleys Daniel Drive, Walker allegedly rifled through their purses to steal cash, checks, credit cards and prescription drugs. Walker also was accused of stealing Graves Jeep Cherokee.
Graves, a retired nurse, had recently turned 85. Stewart, a retired Peach County High School teacher, was a deacon at St. Peter AME Church in Fort Valley and a former president of Fort Valleys Habitat For Humanity chapter.
