A man and woman have been indicted in connection with the 2010 shooting death and robbery of 28-year-old aspiring rap artist, Shelby County Dist. Atty. Gen. Amy Weirich said Wednesday.
The victim, Michael Goins, was found shot to death the morning of July 12, 2010, at his home in the 1200 block of Parkland Road between Orange Mound and Sherwood Forest.
Defendants Brandon Hodges, 32, and Jacqueline Flemmons, 33, were arrested this week after being indicted by a grand jury. Hodges was indicted on charges of first-degree murder in the perpetration of a felony, attempted especially aggravated robbery and especially aggravated burglary.
Flemmons was indicted on charges of facilitation to commit first-degree murder.
The case is being handled by Paul Hagerman, chief prosecutor of the DA’s Multi-Agency Gang Unit Prosecution Team which prosecutes homicide cases and other violent crimes, including aggravated robberies, kidnappings, rapes, criminal attempt murders and narcotics trafficking.
The MGU Prosecution Team, originally formed in 1996 as the Shelby County District Attorney General’s Gang & Narcotics Prosecution Unit, aims to address the high volume of cases involving verified gang members.
