JONESBORO — Clayton County sheriff’s deputies arrested an Atlanta woman Tuesday on a murder charge in the shooting death of a man police said she enticed with a sex for money scheme.
Deputies with the Fugitive Unit arrested Quandala Nicole Kilgore, 21, Tuesday at a Thrasher Drive home in Jonesboro, said Capt. Brian Crisp. She was taken to the Forest Park Police Department to be questioned in connection with the death of Tavares Shanzes Moses, he said.
Police said Moses, 31, was shot twice in the chest Thursday about 3 a.m., at the Home Lodge on Old Dixie Highway in Forest Park. He was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital where he stayed on life support until Monday, when it was removed and he died about 9:20 a.m.
In a warrant issued to Forest Park police Detective Jessica Raley, Kilgore is accused of texting Moses a proposition for her and two women to have sex with him and two men for $100. Raley said Kilgore and the women went to the lodge Thursday about 3 a.m.
Witness Deandre Miller reportedly told police that he opened the door to find the three women and three unknown masked men. Miller allegedly told police the three men demanded money and went through his pockets and the pockets of the other occupants of the room — Moses, Jumario Booker and Carlos Wilson.
The warrant alleges that one of the masked men began firing his weapon at least four times and hit Moses twice in the chest. The six alleged intruders fled the area in a vehicle, according to the warrant.
Miller, Booker and Wilson reportedly identified Kilgore and another female, who has not been charged, as two of the three women inside the room the morning of the shooting.
At press time, Kilgore had not been booked into the Clayton County Jail. She is charged with one count of murder.
According to Kilgore’s Facebook page, she is a hairdresser and the mother of two young children.
