ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A lover's triangle may be what led to a man's murder in an Albany motel. The Dougherty Grand Jury just indicted 27-year-old Tara Harrell and 58-year-old Louis Floyd, Junior for murder and aggravated assault in the August 14th death of 54-year old William Jackson.

He was stabbed in the chest and back inside his room at the Dollar Inn. Prosecutors say Jackson was the father of Harrell's child but that she was dating Floyd, who had recently won close to a half million dollar lottery jackpot.

"They allegedly were aware that Mr. Jackson lived there," said Dougherty D.A. Greg Edwards. "The allegations are that they went there. All of what they were doing at that time will be part of the case, and will be presented during the course of the trial."

 Both Harrell and Floyd are being held in the Dougherty County jail.

An Albany man accused of hitting a 4-year-old with a shotgun while robbing his family is indicted for armed robbery.

Prosecutors say 42-year-old Willie Gene Harper and another man robbed six people, including several children, July 23rd at a home in the 100 block of Talafax Avenue. Prosecutors say Harper hit one child in the head.

 "Apparently robbed the persons there and a child was struck with the shotgun allegedly during the course of the event," said Edwards. Investigators say the victims recognized Harper from seeing him at a club. Harper remains in the Dougherty County jail.
