2 more men admit murdering brother of mega-church preacher

Two more men pleaded guilty Monday to murder in the home invasion of a prominent pastor’s brother in Fulton County.

Superior Court Judge Ural Glanville sentenced Felton Lovejoy, 19, and Montravious Bradley, 18, to life in prison for their role in the armed robbery that ended in the murder of Jerrick Jackson, bringing to four the number of young men convicted in that case.

Demetrius Morgan, 18, was acquitted of murder but convicted of armed robbery and other crimes last month and received a 25-year sentence. Just before that trial, Alejandro Pitts also pleaded guilty and testified against Morgan in exchange for a 25-year sentence.

Jackson died in his northwest Atlanta home when resisting the robbers May 7, 2013. He and his fiancee, Kimberly Little, were confronted by gunmen when getting out of a black Porsche SUV on Lowe Street around 1 a.m.

The couple was forced into the house. Jackson resisted after the gang tried to go upstairs where Little’s 19-year-old daughter was staying after coming home from college, according to witnesses.

Jackson is the brother of the Rev. Wiley Jackson, founder of the Gospel Tabernacle Cathedral.

The only other man still facing trial in the crime is 20-year-old Geno Lewis, who has requested a psychiatric evaluation, said Chief Senior Assistant District Attorney Gabe Banks, who is prosecuting the cases.
