CARTERSVILLE, Ga. — Two women face murder and armed robbery charges in connection with the death of a 74-year-old Georgia man.
News outlets report 19-year-old Rachel Savannah Ridley was arrested Sept. 8 and 20-year-old Keisha Rena Cone was arrested Wednesday. The two women face charges in the death of James Edwards Stephens, who was found dead on Aug. 27 by police conducting a welfare check.
Bartow County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Jonathan Rogers says authorities determined Stephens had been dead for some time. A medical examiner’s report concluded he had died from blunt force injuries.
Rogers says a third arrest is expected.
It’s unclear if the women have lawyers.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is assisting with the case. The investigation is ongoing.
