Man charged with killing pregnant woman

CARROLLTON, Ga. -- A man has been arrested in the shooting death of a pregnant Carrollton mother.

Tyrail Arrenzo Wynn was taken into custody early Friday. He was charged with murder, feticide, aggravated assault, burglary, cruelty to children and marijuana possession.


Wynn, 25, was emotionless during his first court appearance Friday morning, even after a judge told him he could face the death penalty for the murder charge. The feticide charge carries a possible punishment of life in prison.

Wynn's wife was arrested on a drug charge at the same time as her husband. She has not been charged in connection with the murder.

Pregnant woman shot to death in front of toddler

CARROLLTON, Ga. – The mother of a pregnant woman murdered in her apartment is making a public plea to help police catch her daughter's killer.

Family members found Nakita Holland's body Monday evening inside her home at 150 Bennett Circle. They asked the landlord to let them into the apartment after they were unable to contact the victim. When they got inside, they found Holland dead and her 2-year-old daughter crying, unable to understand what had happened or get help.

"It's hard man just to look and see her sister cry, it's hard. Her sister stayed up all night, she won't sleep, it hurts," said Nikki Brewer, one of Holland's close friends.

Small plane lands on Carroll County road

CARROLL COUNTY, Ga. -- No one was hurt when a small plane was forced to land on a Carroll County road Thursday morning.

The Beech 35 aircraft landed at around 8 a.m. on Georgia 100 near Mitchell Road, not far from the Georgia-Alabama border. No cars were on that particular stretch of road at the time.

The pilot, Lewis Barnes, who is from Alabama, said he was flying his son-in-law back home to Acworth after a family vacation in Destin, Fla. He said there was enough fuel to make the trip, but bad weather and a faulty gauge left them with low fuel and nowhere to land.

Traffic control suggested that they land at the Carrollton airport but after several failed attempts, Barnes was forced to find somewhere safe to put the plane down.

The only reported damage to the aircraft was a small dent in its wing.

The FAA is investigating the incident.
