    Police: Boss Killed Employees After They Asked For Raise

    FULTON COUNTY, Ga. -- Police say a business owner who was having financial problems shot and killed two of his employees after they asked him for a raise.

    The suspect in the murders, 38-year-old Rolandas Milinavicius, turned himself in to East Point authorities Saturday. Officials said Milinavicius was the victims' boss.

    East Point police said Milinavicius confessed to the killings. Officials said he told them he was under a lot of stress because of heavy debts with his business.

    Milinavicius told authorities conversations in recent weeks with his only two employees about pay raises pushed him over the edge.

    East Point detectives launched a nationwide manhunt for the Lithuanian native Thursday after his wife discovered the employees' bodies at R.M. Auto International on Willingham Drive near Central Avenue.

    A 28-year-old man and 25-year-old woman had been shot to death.

    "Motive was about money. There were some problems with money in the workplace and basically the stress of him being the owner and running a business got to him," said Capt. Russell Popham with the East Point Police Department.

    Milinavicius faces two counts of murder. Officials said more charges are pending.

    He is due to go before a judge at the Fulton County Jail Monday afternoon.

    You know, with proper entity structuring he could've avoided alot of the stress of being responsible for the business' debts. In this case, it would've saved lives.

    I'm just armchair quarterbacking here but it seems that he was already past the point where he should've shut down the business.

    Wrong Crime, Wrong Order

    why couldn't this guy have simply plotted a murder-suicide, starting with the suicide first? That would save us all the time and trouble of convicting him.
