Accused Murderer of Seven Year Old Boy, to be Arraigned Today

On Wednesday morning, at the DeKalb County courthouse, a man accused of murdering a 7-year-old boy as he slept in his bed [and attempting to murder his sister] will be arraigned. Willie Kelsey, who was formally charged last month , denied his involement in the crime and pled innocent to all charges.

Police say Willie Kelsey shot the boy and his 15-year-old sister execution-style during a home invasion back in September. The girl survived. During his December court date, Kelsey got to hear the full extent of the charges against him. Wearing a bulletproof vest, and shackled at the hands and feet, Kelsey was flanked by six police officers as he was led into county magistrate court.

He was charged with breaking into a home to shoot two children, killing Timothy Johnson Jr., and wounding the boy's sister Alexus Shepherd. Kelsey maintains his innocence.
