According to court documents, Bennett is a known gang member and “hangs out with members of the Conley Road Crew Gang.”
Clayton County District Attorney Tracy Graham Lawson told Channel 2 that Bennett was not prosecuted under Georgia’s Street Gang Act because there has to be proof that the crime was tied to a gang.
Investigators found forensic evidence outside the CVS that led them to Bennett days after Hough’s shooting death.
He is in the Hall County Jail without bond on malice murder and other charges.
"What is malice murder? Bennett asked a judge during his first court appearance appearance last Monday. “I have no clue of what that is.”
