UPDATE: Mauldin Has Been Captured

Gunman Kidnaps Ex-Girlfriend While Fleeing WestA double homicide suspect in Chattooga County is now accused of kidnapping his ex-girlfriend in Norcross and driving her to a motel in Moody, Alabama, on Tuesday night, according to Chattooga County Sheriff Mark Schrader.

Steven James Mauldin, 38, is accused of killing two people and wounding another person during a shooting spree inside a residence on Hwy. 100 near the Chattooga and Floyd county line. The shooting happened just before 8 a.m.

Mauldin fled the crime scene and immediately left Chattooga County. He drove south into Floyd County. He then made his way to Norcross, according to the sheriff.

“Norcross Police have warrants on him for kidnapping. I think there will be some charges in Alabama as well,” Sheriff Schrader said.

Initially, the ex-girlfriend got into Mauldin’s car willingly. Then she insisted on getting out, the sheriff said.

“That’s when he pointed a pistol at her and would not let her leave,” the sheriff said.

The two went to Moody, Alabama, outside of Birmingham, where they stayed at a Super 8. She got word to hotel staff that she had been kidnapped and Mauldin fled.  According to reports out of Alabama, Mauldin was seen heading toward Interstate 20.

He is still considered armed and dangerous, according to cops.

Mauldin is accused of killing 35-year-old Joe Edward Brown and his 61-year-old mother Linda Mae Everett, both of Hwy. 100, according to the sheriff.

The injured man that is fighting for his life at an area hospital has been identified as Daryl Lee Marsh, 46, of that same residence on Hwy. 100.

Law enforcement officials are looking for a stolen silver 2003 Honda Civic.  The license plate number is RMR8244, according to the sheriff.

    Should not waste time and money with a trial for this piece of trash and whatever defence attorney that would take a penny to defend him, he doesn’t qualify for due process or any rights, a career criminal that needs executed on the spot , do not waste time using our broken judicial system and he is proof it’s broken, I would even volunteer to administer the cranial explosion.
