Felon indicted in shooting that killed one, injured two others

A convicted felon, serving time in state prison, has been indicted in Clayton County for the January shooting death of a man he thought burglarized his girlfriend's house.

Superior Court records show that Patrick Ramon Moore, 24, also known as Crown, was indicted for murder in the Jan. 3 shooting death of Tracy Burton, 20. Warrants allege that Moore shot Burton with an AK-47 because he thought Burton broke into Moore's girlfriend's house.

Moore also faces charges of wounding Fabian Ellis, 22, and Jarvis Jervod, 21. A third victim, Erica Peterson, 18, was shot at, but was not wounded, the warrants allege. Police said the semi-automatic rifle was reported stolen Dec. 22, in Clayton County.

Georgia Department of Corrections records show that Moore is serving a 10-year sentence for false imprisonment in a Lamar County case.

In other indictments, Marvlyn Eugene Martin, 37, faces charges in connection with the death of a motorcyclist on Aug. 20. Warrants allege that Martin was driving under the influence when he hit Frank Joseph Cassidy, Jr., 24. Cassidy was taken to Southern Regional Hospital after the crash at 3:50 a.m., and died at 4:27 a.m., court records show.

Police said Martin was driving west in the eastbound lane of Burbank Trail, when he hit Cassidy's Yamaha.

Nancy Ruth Lawrence, 27, of Jonesboro, was indicted for three counts each of cruelty to children and battery. Police said Lawrence beat three children she was supervising with a cell phone charger cord in August. The children, 10, 8 and 8, suffered welts on their bodies, said police.

Angela Deanne Swift-Hilton, 38, was indicted in an incident on March 3, 2010, involving her son. Police said she purposely backed into him with her Honda Accord, injuring the child.

Claudia Susvilla, 20, was indicted on 15 counts involving injuries to a newborn girl on January 23, less than a month after the child was born. Police said Susvilla squeezed the baby, born Dec. 17, because the baby was fussy. The infant suffered fractured ribs, arms, legs and skull. Police said Susvilla then waited three days before seeking medical treatment for the baby.

Laneisha Maria Palmer was indicted on multiple counts of contributing to the deprivation of a minor, aggravated battery and aggravated assault. Warrants allege that Palmer left her three children alone from evening to morning. Police said Palmer also burned one of the children all over his body with a clothes iron.

Rocky Lane, 50, was indicted for child molestation, cruelty to children in the first degree, aggravated child molestation and aggravated sodomy. Police said Lane performed sex acts on a 4-year-old boy, including allegedly biting the child's genitalia. Police said the abuse traumatized the child to the point he repeatedly soils his pants while in preschool.

Geneva Ronda Stone, 30, was indicted for engaging in what the alleged victim described as a tactic to "prolong her eviction." Stone faces charges of deposit account fraud, forgery, perjury, theft by taking and criminal damage to property.

Clayton County Magistrate Court documents allege that Stone bounced a $710 rent check to Nina Stafford in November 2009. In Jan. 2010, police said Stone presented a quit claim deed purporting to show that Nina Stafford sold Stone the rental house on Shelburn Drive.

Police said Stone lied during a May 13, 2010, hearing when she told Judge Steven Teske that she paid $45,000 for the house. In June 2010, police said Stone took the air conditioning unit, heater, water heater, refrigerator and carpet from the house. Stone is also accused of flooding the basement and destroying the walls.

Stone has several outstanding cases in Clayton County, according to court records. Police said she made a false report of a crime and filed a fraudulent insurance claim on July 10, 2010, when she reported the theft of a 2008 Cadillac Escalade. Warrants allege that Stone created a clone vehicle by faking a vehicle registration and tried to get nearly $40,000 in insurance by reporting it stolen.

She was arrested in 2002 for theft by receiving stolen property and was sentenced to five years under the First Offender Act. In January 2006, her probation was revoked and Stone was ordered to serve one year in jail over and above her probated sentence.

Stone is out on bond from an October arrest for theft by receiving stolen property, records show. She also has a case pending in State Court involving a charge of obstruction of an officer from a November incident.
