MORROW—Two people accused of murder have been indicted by a Clayton County Grand Jury.

Latoris Antowyn Grovner and Kajul Tawice Harvey were indicted Wednesday on malice murder, felony murder, aggravated assault, aggravated battery and tampering with evidence charges.

Clayton County police arrested Grovner and Harvey last year for the June 3, alleged murder which took place at the Woods at Southlake Apartments, located at 855 Mt. Zion Road in Morrow.

Police said Grovner, 22, confessed to police he along with Harvey beat Alena Marble with a metal pot and a glass bottle, according to the arrest warrant for murder.

The indictment alleges Grovner hit Marble in her head with his fist causing severe damage to her face.

“With malice aforethought, express and implied cause of death of Alena Marble by beating her about the head with a metal pot and glass bottle,” wrote Clayton Police Detective J. Southerland in the murder arrest warrant. “[Grovner] after miranda, admitted to Clayton County Police Clayton Police Detective J. Southerland that he along with Kajul Harvey committed said act.”

Police said Grovner and Harvey tried to clean up the alleged murder scene by throwing away the metal pot and glass bottle they say was used to kill Marble. The two are also accused of trying to clean up blood police found in the living room of the apartment.
