Home Invasion Suspects Appear in Court

Moultrie - - Two suspected home invasion killers made their first appearances in court Wednesday afternoon. 

James Cloud and Craig Gandy are charged with killing 46-year-old Karen Moore at her Moultrie home during a robbery Tuesday morning. Her husband, James, was shot several times but survived.

Deputies escorted Cloud from his jail cell Wednesday afternoon to appear before Judge J.J. McMillian.

McMillian read the charges against Cloud which include murder, burglary, armed robbery, and aggravated assault. Then, 20 year old Craig Gandy was taken into the courtroom to hear the same charges he faces. Gandy questioned why there were tv cameras in the courtroom.

The victims' families sat quietly in the back of the courtroom during the hearing. Investigators say Gandy and Cloud worked for the Moore's and knew they had cash in their home.  

"It's several questions that the family would have in a situation such as these. Many of them, there wont be an answer to. I don't know if the guys who did this crime could answer the questions but certainly not law enforcement," says Sheriff Al Whittington.

Assistant District Attorney Brian McDaniel says a grand jury will meet in December. He says he would like this case to be considered at that time.

At Wednesday's hearing, both suspects requested a public defender.
