February 20-- A Toombs County man is scheduled to get his day in court next week for the alleged killing of a young man he caught visiting his daughter in her bedroom.
Sixty-two-year old Norman NeeSmith is facing charges of felony murder, aggravated assault and false imprisonment. He's accused of fatally shooting 22-year-old Justin DeShun Patterson of Montgomery County as he fled from NeeSmith's mobile home at 220 Harden Chapel Road in the pre-dawn hours of January 29, 2011.
At the time of the incident, Toombs County Sheriff Junior Kight reported NeeSmith's daughter, 18-year-old Danielle Nicole Rozier and a juvenile girl invited Patterson and his 18-year-old brother to the house after NeeSmith went to bed.
Court officials say jury selection is expected Monday in Toombs County Superior Court with District Attorney Hayward Altman presenting the state's case starting Tuesday.
