Lee found his victims by parking at the QuikTrip gas station on Centerville Highway in Snellville and following them home, where he would force his way in and rob the residents at gunpoint, a detective said at an August hearing. During the last alleged home invasion, Lee shot and killed 27-year-old Kemar Hawkins.

Lee had initially been charged with 11 counts of false imprisonment, but those are not included in the two indictments, both returned on Nov. 7. In addition to the aggravated assault and murder charges, Lee’s also been indicted on charges of armed robbery, home invasion, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. He remains in the Gwinnett County Detention Center without bond.
