Woman charged in DeKalb dating app murder to face judge

A woman charged in the death of a man she met on a dating app is due in DeKalb County court Friday. 

Clarissa McGhee, a baby-faced 21-year-old McDonough resident, is accused of meeting 23-year-old Norcross resident Jordan Collins at a Redan home “under the pretense of a date.” But the Sept. 1 encounter turned into a robbery attempt involving three accomplices, and Collins was gunned down in the process, police have said. His brother was also shot while trying to help Collins. 

McGhee, whose Facebook page says she most recently worked as a barista, reportedly met Collins on the popular site PlentyOfFish. Collins also is said to have met suspect Nashea Poole, 21, on the app.

The women allegedly “lured” Collins outside the house off Tunbridge Wells Road, where two men waited to rob him

The hearing for McGhee is at 1 p.m. and is intended to determine if the state has probable cause to continue with the case in DeKalb County Superior Court. New details on the crime should come from from police testimony. 

The other three suspects, including Antonio Avery, 25, and Demarco Butler, 27, are scheduled to have a hearing on Oct. 25. 

All four suspects face murder charges and are in the county jail.
