It was an astonishing day in court today for the death penalty trial of Dorian O'Kelley, the man accused of killing a Chatham County mother and daughter and then setting their home on fire.
The heinous crime happened three years ago on Whitfield Avenue. Investigators say Dorian O'Kelley and a friend, beat, tortured, and killed Susan Pittman and her thirteen year old daughter, Kimberly. An autopsy showed Susan Pittman died from the beatings and Kimberly died from smoke inhalation. O'Kelley's friend, Daryl Stinksi, is scheduled to go to trial at a later date. If convicted, both could face the death penalty.
