Marlo Carter and Jameisha McClain.
They only planned to rob him.
But what negroes plan to do and what they actually end up doing when the jungle adrenaline kicks in are often vastly different – and never in a good way.
Two Jefferson County residents who were arrested Thursday night will be held without bond while prosecutors prepare charges against them.
On Monday, Jefferson County Judge Kim Bridgforth ruled prosecutors have probable cause to charge Marlo Carter, 29, and Jameisha McClain, 29, with capital murder in the Oct. 14 shooting death of Richard Ratliff, 69, who was found in a bathtub inside an apartment in the 2200 block of West 10th Avenue and pronounced dead at the scene.
Officers initially went to the apartment for a medical call and according to a report, Ratliff was bleeding from gunshot wounds to his face and chest. His pockets were also turned out and he was missing his cell phone. Five spent .380-caliber shell casings were found while officers were searching the apartment.
McClain and Carter were taken into custody Thursday night at a motel on Blake Street.
Detective Steve Rucker reported that when McClain was interviewed, she said she had not been with Carter when Ratliff was killed and said Carter had told her he was going to rob Ratliff and wanted her to come along but she refused. She also said Another female had used her name in the robbery and that is why people thought she was involved.
