ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A former Dougherty County jailer wanted for murder is now in jail. Allen Wade Robinson, Jr., 35, was booked into the Dougherty County Jail just after 2 a.m. Thursday morning. Police began a manhunt for the former detention officer who is accused of stabbing his former girlfriend to death Wednesday afternoon in the parking lot of an Albany shopping center.
Authorities say Robinson pulled 30-year-old Rashonda Dowell out of her car in the parking lot of the Pic-N-Sav on Loftus Drive where he stabbed her and then fled the scene. Witnesses called for help and Dowell was taken by EMS to the hospital where she later died from her wounds.
A lookout was issued for a silver Cadillac Deville that Robinson was last seen driving. Just before midnight Wedneday, police spotted Robinson's car on the U.S. 19 in Albany.
With the assistance of U.S. Marshals, Albany Police were able to pull over Robinson and placed him under arrest.
Robinson is facing several charges including possession of firearm or knife during the commission of a crime, aggravated assault, kidnapping, aggravated stalking, and murder.
Robinson had been arrested twice last month on battery charges and violating a protective order by contacting the victim.
He was fired from his job as a detention officer with the Dougherty County Sheriff's Office following his previous arrest.
