Chief Cheek said that Thomas will be charged with felony murder, armed robbery, and possession of a firearm during the commission a crime. Chief Cheek said more charges are pending against Thomas, and added that Thomas is a convicted felon and that he had robbed the same convenience store last year.


My prayers go out to his family.

Edit: Sorry I was posting mine while you had found the same fact.

Tragic and senseless, my prayers go out to the family.

Why was this scumbag out of prison? When will the "justice" system do it's job properly? A good man is dead because the system failed. Again.

Even though it is Christmas Eve, it is a sad day here in SW Georgia. Lt. Rouse was a loved and respected family man.

There was another murder just last week. The Albany area is not safe. Will be in prayer for the Rouse family.

I agree, sometimes words just seem to fall short. Prayers for his family and friends, and fellow officers. Completely senseless. All for a few bucks.

Indicted by a grand jury and District Attorney Greg Edwards in August 2009, court documents show he entered a negotiated guilty plea to the felony burglary count on Sept. 22, 2009, and was sentenced to serve five years probation, ordered to pay $510 in fines and given first-offender treatment.
But about a year later, Thomas was arrested for violating the terms of that probation and given a probation revocation hearing.
According to those court documents, Thomas stipulated he had failed to report to his probation officer as required, failed a June 1, 2010, drug test, was $456 in arrears on his $510 fine and had failed to take his court-ordered personality classes.
As a result, Chief Superior Court Judge Willie Lockette amended Thomas’ sentence to give him credit for time served at the Dougherty County Jail from May 28, 2010, until the hearing which was June 7, 2010, returned him to probation and added the stipulation that he be drug tested twice per month for 24 months, that he complete substance abuse counseling and that he complete personal responsibility classes.
Two months later......
He violated parole again link

but DCP Chief Don Cheek said at a press conference Friday that Thomas was out on probation when he is accused of shooting Rouse.

My heart aches for his wife and children.

Hopefully, out politicians will wake up and ensure animals like the murderer go to prison and stay there until they complete their sentences. Until that happens, we'll continue to have more tragedies like this one. What a sad waste of a fine man's life.
