    GA - Charles Quigg, 46, murdered, Sandy Springs, 26 Nov 2005

    A man accused of kidnapping a woman after committing murder and arson in Sandy Springs appeared before a judge inside the Fulton County Jail Tuesday.

    Mario Konecny made a brief court appearance before bailiffs took him back to his jail cell. He is charged with seven counts, including murder, armed robbery, kidnapping, and arson.

    A magistrate judge told Konecny that, due to the serious nature of the crime, he will not be allowed out of jail on bond. Konecny, 31, is accused by police of killing a man at a home on Brandon Mill Road in Sandy Springs, setting a fire to the home, and then kidnapping a woman.

    Konecny drove the woman to Marietta, according to police, where she sought help from a convenience store clerk at a RaceTrac on Delk Road. The clerk called 911 just after noon on Monday to report a possible kidnapping.

    Marietta Officer Brian Marshall said, “She alerted the clerk that she was kidnapped and needed help. The clerk called 911 and reported the location of the vehicle.”

    Marietta Police arrived to box in Konecny's vehicle before he could flee the scene. A search turned up a man's body in the bed of the truck, authorities said.

    Investigators have not released the names of the kidnapping victim or murder victim.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Mario Konecny Charged with Murder, Kidnapping, Arson and Armed Robbery

    Jury selection begins Monday, June 18th in the murder trial of 32-year-old Mario Konecny in the December 2005 murder of mortgage broker Charles Quigg. Konecny is charged with shooting Quigg at his home on Brandon Mills Road in Sandy Springs, setting the house on fire and kidnapping Quigg’s girlfriend. When Konecny stopped for gas, the woman was able to discretely alert a store clerk to her predicament. The clerk called police. Police found Quigg’s body in Konecny’s truck at the Delk Road service station and arrested him.

    Senior Assistant District Attorney Fani Willis will represent the state during the trial before Superior Court Judge Bensonetta Tipton Lane.



    Mario Konecny Sentenced for Conviction on Arson, Concealing a Death

    Mario Konecny—arrested on Delk Road in Marietta with a dead man in the back of his truck—has been sentenced to 25 years in prison. Earlier this month, a Fulton County Superior Court jury found Konecny guilty of arson, concealing the death of another, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and tampering with evidence. Late yesterday, Superior Court Judge Bensonetta T. Lane sentenced the 32-year-old defendant as follows:

    -20 years on the arson conviction

    -10 years on the concealing the death conviction (to run concurrent with arson)

    -5 years for possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony; and

    -12 months for tampering with evidence—commuted to time served.

    The jury found Konecny not guilty of murder, aggravated assault, armed robbery and kidnapping charges.


    Mario Konecny is currently being housed at the Ware State Prison.
    Maximum Possible Release Date: 11/28/2030.

    Isn't that strange? When they caught him, he still had the woman he kidnapped and the body was in the back of the truck! How could they not find him guilty? It is completely beyond my understanding. I wasn't able to find any additional information to shed light on what happened.
