The case against Alpha Timbo, the 21-year-old man charged with a Thanksgiving day double murder, and triple shooting, was bound over to Superior Court, after a probable cause hearing Tuesday.

Timbo allegedly forced 19-year-old Darrious Dareiontae Adams to his knees, and shot him in the back of the head with a .22-caliber revolver, during an early morning drug deal on Nov. 22.

He had, according to witnesses, been to the Hidden Creek apartment, in Morrow, four times that night to buy marijuana from Adams, who was also know as "Magic." On the fourth visit, he began "fidgeting" with the gun, according to witnesses, and then pulled it on Adams.

Timbo, allegedly, then shot 20-year-old Kimberly Szilagyi in the head while she slept in a bed in the back of the apartment complex.

Szilagyi was found, by Clayton County Police, bleeding and screaming "My baby, my baby." She died eight days later.

Timbo allegedly shot 17-year-old Jasmine Brown, but she "played dead," according to her statements to police, and survived the attack. Brown provided eyewitness statements to police, as evidence against Timbo.

Police also found another man, reportedly a friend of the 21-year-old Timbo, who went into the Morrow apartment with Timbo to purchase the drugs.

The man said he ran away when Timbo pulled out the gun. He said he thought Timbo was going to shoot him, too.

The case against Timbo will be presented to a grand jury and he will face indictment on two counts of murder and two counts of aggravated assault. He is scheduled to have a bond hearing on Dec. 21.
