2 men arrested after allegedly robbing, killing man in Mableton in 2016

Police arrested two men Wednesday after investigators tied them to a 2016 homicide.

Terrance Rahmon Marshall, 23, and Dontavian Jones, 19, both of Cochran, were taken into custody in connection with the homicide of 41-year-old De’wenzel James Spence, Cobb County police said.

Spence was found dead four years ago in some woods in the 6300 block of Queens Mill Road in Mableton, AJC.com previously reported.

In January 2017, police said they had obtained surveillance photos and some leads in the case, but there was little information available on what took place. A surveillance photo was released of Spence and an unknown person who was sought in connection with the victim’s death.

Detectives said Spence was forced to go with them from then-named Turner Field to a bank in Mableton, where they withdrew money from an ATM. For an unknown reason, the suspects then killed Spence and dumped his body in the wooded area.

The following day, two men and two women used the victim’s MARTA breeze card near Turner Field, but no other information had been released.

Marshall has been booked into the Cobb County Jail without bond on charges of murder, armed robbery and aggravated assault, jail records show. 

Jones’ booking has not been completed.
