The Georgia Supreme Court has upheld the murder conviction of a man who killed a 50-year-old car salesman in a Gwinnett County hotel parking lot.
Christopher Brown was convicted of the 2008 murder and armed robbery of Robert Lovelace. Lovelace had liquidated his 401(k) for more than $21,000 which he planned to use to buy cocaine and sell at a profit, the ruling said. The deal fell through, and Lovelace was fatally shot in a Holiday Inn Express parking lot. His money was never located.
