    GA - William DaVitte, 55, slain, wife injured in carjacking, Martinez, 14 Aug 2014


    Authorities said that DaVitte’s wife was sitting in the passenger seat of their 2010 gold Nissan Murano in the parking lot at about 10:30 p.m. when police say Robinson approached her. “He tapped on the window and demanded she open the door,” Morris said after the incident. “And he started beating her with the handgun.”

    DaVitte came running when he heard his wife scream and honk the horn. As he approached, police say Robinson shot him three times. Columbia County Coroner Vernon Collins said he pronounced DaVitte dead at the scene. His wife was treated at Georgia Regents Medical Center for her injuries.

    Morris said Robinson fled in the couple’s vehicle.

    A Florida man recently indicted in the August 14 murder of a Martinez man was extradited back to Columbia County Friday.

    Daniel Nelson Robinson, 21, of Jacksonville, arrived at the Columbia County Detention Center just before 2 p.m., according to Columbia County sheriff's Capt. Steve Morris. Robinson was captured more than a month ago, several hours after police say he shot William "Bill" DaVitte, 55, and assaulted his wife in the parking lot of Marvin United Methodist Church.

    A Columbia County Grand Jury indicted Robinson this week on charges of murder, armed robbery, aggravated assault, hijacking a motor vehicle, and two counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, according to court records released Friday.

    Suppression issue in Columbia County death penalty case


    Attorneys for a Florida man accused of gunning down a Columbia County resident in a church parking lot contend the circumstances of Daniel Robinson’s arrest and questioning requires the suppression of physical evidence and his statement. It’s a contention the prosecution says lack merit.

    It will be up to Judge John Flythe to decide which side is correct. A hearing has not been set.
