Donald Ashe Killed Molne
Malone told her mother she was going to a friend’s house on October 23, 2013. A DeKalb police report said the teen interrupted an armed robbery when she entered her friend’s apartment.
The 18-year-old was shot once in the chest and once in the back.
Her death sparked an outcry on social media and her case was featured on The Dr. Oz Show in March. Her family had previously spoken out about the case and expressed distrust in the couple’s statements.
Honey’s family members rejoiced at the news of Ashe’s arrest.
The couple living in the home told police three to six armed men clad in black stormed into their home, tied them up and put them in a bathroom, the report said.
The woman told police she heard Malone enter the apartment and scream, then she heard several shots, the report said.
When police arrived, the couple was outside the apartment and Malone was ‘unconscious and not breathing, lying on her right side with several gunshot wounds to the body,’ the report said.
Online records indicate that Ashe has a lengthy criminal history, which includes convictions on charges of robbery, aggravated assault, kidnapping and burglary, pre-dating Malone’ killing.
A day after the girl was shot dead, Ashe was arrested for firearms possession by a felon and theft by receiving stolen property.
