Daniel Payton Brinson, 22, of Harrison, was charged Wednesday with two counts of malice murder, the GBI announced. Brinson is being held in the Cobb County Adult Detention Center following his April 26 arrest on multiple drug charges. He remains there without bond, online records show.
The murder charges stem from the shootings of Destiney Hope Knight and Charlie Jaylon Garrett, both 18, who were found near an intersection in Wrightsville, the GBI said. The address where the bodies were discovered is a rural spot with no buildings in sight. Wrightsville is located about 60 miles east of Macon and about 150 miles southeast of Atlanta.
