Doctor kidnapper indicted.

A Hinds County grand jury indicted Andre Kennedy on February 26 for kidnapping, armed robbery, and burglary.  Kennedy and his accomplice Edwin "Guttalife" Robinson kidnapped a doctor from his Ridgewood home early on a Saturday morning, May 16, 2015.  A doctor who just happened to be a competitive shooter.  The indictment states the charges are terror-enhanced.*  The case is assigned to Judge Jeff Weill.

The former Guttalife Dee
The two hoodlums forced the doctor to drive to an ATM and then to some woods on Eastover Drive and Pinewood.  They robbed him of $1,500 and told him they were going back to his home to do some unmentionable things to his wife.  He managed to jump out of the vehicle and grab a pistol behind the seat.  Guttalife went to the gutter as the good doctor  pumped him full of led while Kennedy fled.  The victim was ironically packing his truck to attend a shooting competition at Magnolia Pistol and Shooting Range when he was kidnapped at 7:30 AM.  May 2015 post. 

JPD caught Kennedy several days later thanks to tips provided by JJ readers and charged him with capital murder, armed robbery, and kidnapping.  However, the grand jury did not indict Kennedy for capital murder.   Kennedy was an MDOC employee at the time of the crime but has since been terminated by the department.

Kingfish note: No indictment for murder.  This dude should be looking at the possibility of life in prison for capital murder.  Moral cowardice. 

*Terror-enhancement increases the minimum prison term to ten years.

Kennedy currently resides in the Hinds County Detention Center at Raymond:

This must be a very complicated case because it took 10 months to indict. RIP Guttalife.

it's a shame the good doctor didn't have the chance to fill this thug with lead also.

would have saved court costs and a lifetime of meals and housing on us.,

Exactly, 2:20. I was planning to write the exact same thing. Wish it had been two thugs instead of one.

He'll be out in a couple of years.

So when the good (shot) doctor testifies, he should look directly in guttalife's friend's eyes and say, "man I sure wished you would have hung out with me and gutta for a little longer and enjoyed the fun. Maybe when you get out the pen, we can get together. You know, just me and you."

Sad thing is that he was not indicted on the capitol murder charge. That is a easy one. Since he was in the commission of a armed robbery and kidnapping and his partner was killed that is capital murder. RSS once again drops the ball. This guy will maybe do 10 years but if the capital murder charge had been in effect he would do life, which is what he needs to do.

Maybe when he gets out he will come over to Rankin or Madison and Michel Guest can do RSS job again.

I wonder how long it will take for the wrongful death suits to start going after everything the good doctor has worked entire life for? You can rest assured they will start if they havent already.

Who knows maybe Gutta Dee and Kennedy will get what they were after all along only their families will be enjoying it with out them.

3:50 Technically of course it is capital murder and some have been convicted of such- I had a client once indicted for that here in Hinds County- But there ain't nothing easy about it when trying to hold a Defendant responsible because the victim killed his co-defendant - the jury wants to convict the one who did the shooting, not because there is a legal interpretation allowing this type of conviction to stand- You have to think these cases all the way through and you seem to only care about what you can glean from the surface- Nonetheless, if you think that he will do 10 years after Weill and the DA are finished with him, you can't really mean that- Armed robbery and kidnapping in this case will get him life by the jury period- If not, Weill will give him one day less than life- You know that but you just want to be negative- This site is so negative- This is a positive day for Jackson-

Tommie will rework the docket so that it has to be reassigned while Jeff is on vacation.

Jumbo-Liars' Shield said...

If it's not a sex crime involving a woman or a minor I still can't see the wisdom of refusing to identify the doctor. Why does he need to be shielded? Is this Jumbo-Liars version of 'witness protection'?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
