Ga. Supreme Court upholds Macon murder conviction

The Georgia Supreme Court upheld the murder conviction Monday of a Macon teen who was found guilty in the death of a robbery victim paralyzed by a gunshot.

Bibb County jurors found 18-year-old Shaheed Rashad Milford guilty of murder, aggravated assault and armed robbery after a two-day trial in Bibb County Superior Court. Milford, 16 years old at the time, shot 26-year-old Sean Robinson in the throat July 18, 2010. Robinson was paralyzed from the neck down, and he died in 2011.

Brandon Bernard Stuckey pleaded guilty to robbery by force in the case. He was sentenced to 15 years in prison, followed by five years on probation.

Stuckey, who was 15 at the time, testified that he and Milford robbed Robinson of his bicycle on Graham Street. He said Milford was carrying a pistol.

Milford and Stuckey later followed Robinson to C Street, near King Street, where Milford shot Robinson.

The teens ran on King Street toward Eisenhower Parkway, discarded the gun and went to Stuckey’s home, where police arrested them.
