Local businessman arrested, charged in Sunday morning murder

STAFF REPORTS :::

Local businessman Timothy Watkins has been arrested in Clayton County in connection to the shooting death of Kenneth Marshall Jr.

Officers of the Clayton County Police Department responded to the 9900 block of Chappell Lane at approximately 1:20 a.m. Sunday in reference to a person shot.

Upon arriving at the scene, officers discovered Marshall, who had sustained multiple gunshot wounds, allegedly at the hands of Watkins, his brother-in-law, while at a family gathering.

Officials say the preliminary investigation into the incident focused on a verbal altercation said to have occurred between Marshall and Watkins.

Investigators say the altercation escalated, resulting in Watkins allegedly firing several rounds from a firearm, fatally wounding Marshall.

A second victim identified as Marquis Fletcher, who was uninvolved in the alleged altercation, was also struck by a stray bullet. He was transported to a local hospital by Clayton County Emergency Medical Services for treatment of a non-life threatening injury. 

Watkins was later apprehended and has been charged with murder and two counts of aggravated assault.

  1. Cold Blooded – a. Lacking feeling or emotion. b. Executed without feeling or emotion. I guess people can decide what type of murderer he is but one thing for sure is he IS a MURDERER. He was in sound mind and body when he made a conscious decision to shoot 4 to 5 times an UNARMED man. Sounds a bit premeditated to me! No matter what a person is going through in life it doesn’t justify taking someone else life. Words are just that WORDS. But I guess when you are around death everyday another persons life doesn’t mean much to you. I guess that would be one way to stay in business, go around killing people. Now two young kids are without a GREAT father because Timothy couldn’t control his feelings. He clearly had some demons within himself that he was dealing with. People saying “he wouldn’t hurt a fly”. Well he may not hurt a fly but he damn sure will MURDER a person. Justice will be served and that is a FACT.

  2. Murderer FOR SURE, cold blooded, don’t know, YES we CAN judge, judgement is based ON VIOLATION of the LAW! God not only has the final say so, HE had the say so BEFORE any of us was born by HIM giving the 10 Commandments, ANYBODY can judge by measuring themselves or others by THAT >>>>HOLY<<<< standard!

    Kenny was an amazing man. I had the pleasure of knowing him through the Peachtree City Walmat where he delivered for Kellogs. I am gonna miss him terribly. The last time I saw Kenny he gave me a hug and said everything will get better. I can’t believe this selfish man took the life of one of the most upstanding men I knew. RIP Kenny.

        Timothy absolutely is a COLD BLOODED MURDERER. He was in sound mind and body when he made a conscious decision to shoot 4 to 5 times an UNARMED man. Sounds a bit premeditated to me! No matter what a person is going through in life it doesn’t justify taking someone else life. Words are just that WORDS.

Now two young kids are without a GREAT father because Timothy couldn’t control his feelings. He clearly had some demons within himself that he was dealing with. Maybe he has a split personality because he has so many fooled. People saying “he wouldn’t hurt a fly”. Well he may not hurt a fly but he damn sure will MURDER a person. Justice will be served and that is a FACT.
