“Kimmie” was out with friends in October 2013 when she was shot in the parking lot of the Shiloh Green Apartments off Wade Green Road, just west of I-75. She was transported to WellStar Kennestone Hospital, where she later died.
Investigators said the shooting was the result of an altercation between two carloads of women near the gate of the complex, and that Lindsey didn’t know Kilgore. Kilgore’s friends later said they watched helplessly as she was shot.
“I was in the passenger seat and she was looking right at me when it happened,” Shannon Stone said at a vigil honoring Kilgore. “I was the last sight she saw before her life was taken, and I couldn’t stop it.”
Lindsey, 23, of Austell, was quickly identified as the suspect and arrested in the hours after Kilgore's death. In January 2014, Lindsey was indicted on murder charges. She has remained in the Cobb County jail without bond since her Oct. 12, 2013, arrest, booking records showed.
When she killed Kilgore, Lindsey was on probation for a conviction in Cobb County just seven months earlier. On April 1, 2013, Lindsey was sentenced to six years on probation for simple battery and obstruction, according to Cobb County Superior Court Records. As a convicted felon, Lindsey should not have had a gun.
In August 2012, Lindsey was arrested after jumping on her girlfriend, punching and choking her, her arrest warrant stated. She then kicked and punched an officer attempting to separate her from attacking the other woman.
Lindsey’s criminal history dates back to December 2008, when she was accused of punching a student 17 times while on a school bus, records showed.
