Three suspects were arrested today in Rome, Georgia in relation to an April 26 assault in Whitfield County.
David Wayne Williams, 47 of Walton County, was arrested for allegedly stabbing Mayra Espitia multiple times, including in the neck, on Tuesday.
The incident occurred after Espitia posted an ad on Craigslist trying to sell a pick-up truck. Williams allegedly contacted her saying he was interested in the truck, and they met at the victim's house, where she was alone.
Williams then stabbed Espitia and stole the truck, according to a press release from the Whitfield County Sheriff's office.
A woman, later identified by deputies as Donna Warren, rode with Williams to the scene of the crime, according to the release.
Deputies went to Warren's property on Baker Drive in Rome where they found both Warren and Williams pulling up in a vehicle matching the description of the one used in the robbery. Williams jumped out of the car and ran but was later found and arrested, according to the release.
Detectives also believe Warren's brother, Jerry Wade Warren, was part of the robbery, according to the release. He was later arrested and charged with two counts of conspiracy to commit a felony. Donna Warren was booked on the same charges. Williams was charged with aggravated battery and armed robbery.
Detectives have not found the stolen truck yet, but they believe they found another reportedly stolen vehicle from Walton County that Williams sold, according to the release.
