Murder suspect arrested

 May 2, 2007

Tifton --  A Tifton teenager wanted for murder is in jail.  18-year old Shurrod Rich was arrested around two o'clock Wednesday morning and charged in the killing of 66-year old Lorrine Bozeman.

She was gunned down Sunday night in a home invasion robbery. Bozeman's great-nephew, 15-year old Layton Lester is also charged with her shooting. Another teen, 17-year old Rodney King is charged with theft by receiving stolen property because he was caught with some of her money on him.  

"I believe that it was more than that I don't know the exact amount, because I didn't talk with the investigators who had that information, but that was the whole motive that we have found now behind it," said Lt. Porter Jackson.  

17-year old Rodney King was also arrested for theft by receiving stolen property. Investigators say he had some of Bozeman's money. Police continue to question witnesses and could make more arrests in the case.
