SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Additional details regarding the guilty pleas by Darrell Golden and Dwayne McCloud, who were charged as accomplices in the murder of John Green in January 2011, have been released.
According to the Office of Eastern Judicial Circuit/Chatham County District Attorney Larry Chisolm, both defendants were charged with murder, armed robbery, aggravated assault and possession a firearm during the commission of a crime in connection with the Jan. 18, 2011 robbery of Ganzie and Theria Outten on East 35th Street in Savannah.
Ganzie and Theria Outten were walking westbound on East 35th Street when a Camry pulled up to them. The driver of the Camry was Trevonte Edward and the passenger was Darrell Golden. Edward screamed out the window 'That's him!' and chased down both Ganzie and Theria.
Edward pulled a gun out and pointed it at Ganzie while going through both him and Theria's pockets and then allegedly kicking Ganzie.
Both Edwards and Golden were identified in a photo lineup by Theria. Edwards pled guilty to both Armed Robbery cases and received a sentence of 10 years to serve in prison, one to serve consecutively to his life sentence and the other to run concurrently.
Based in the suppression of the statements, on the reluctance of the witnesses in the Outten case to testify and on the roles of Golden and McCloud that could be proven, the State allowed the Defendants to plea to the lesser charges.
