Gwinnett investigators went to the family’s residence at an Extended Stay in Peachtree Corners, where Ritter said police found Najlaa Mcintosh, the daughter also charged with murder.
Authorities also found Iasia Sweeting, baby Alcenti’s mother, on the floor, wrapped in blankets and in “desperate need of medical attention,” Ritter said. Three children in the room “were also severely malnourished and were in need of medical attention,” he said. The children ranged from 3 to 5 years old.
Through the investigation, authorities learned Calvin Mcintosh fathered two children with Najlaa Mcintosh and two children with Sweeting. They also discovered “copious amounts of literature and notes in reference to ritualistic behavior and the Nuwaubian Nation of Moors, an Islam based cult which is known for being a sovereign group,” Ritter said in the statement.
“Calvin ordered Najlaa to deprive the children and Iasia of food if they are disobedient. The Gwinnett County Medical Examiner ruled starvation as the cause of death for Alcenti.”
Calvin Mcintosh was arrested on multiple charges, including one count of felony murder, one count of malice murder, four counts of cruelty to children in the first degree, one count of cruelty to children in the second degree, one count of cruelty to a physically disabled adult, one count of rape, one count of incest and one count of aggravated sodomy.
