A day earlier, Colvin and Willard, of Suwanee, were dining at Rico’s World Kitchen when an altercation broke out, Gwinnett police said. Colvin allegedly shot Willard outside the restaurant, then tried to run before being caught.
“It all happened outside the restaurant,” police spokesman Wilbert Rundles said. “What led to the actual dispute and altercation, we’re still trying to put together.”
Police didn’t release any new details on the case Wednesday.
While Colvin was being escorted from the courtroom, a family member of the victim could be heard yelling a disparaging comment at him in disgust.
Colvin, of Auburn, has been charged with murder, felony murder and aggravated assault. He is being held without bond in the Gwinnett County Jail.
He and Willard worked at a local towing company, police told Channel 2 on Tuesday.
In Wednesday’s hearing, the judge told Colvin that he doesn’t see why taxpayers should pay for his attorney after Colvin told the judge how much money he has in the bank (a figure he later took back, according to Channel 2).
The judge is expected to make a final decision on appointing an attorney for Colvin on Nov. 29, according to Channel 2.
