Andre Kennedy was arraigned on April 21 after he was indicted on February 26 for the May 2015 kidnapping and armed robbery of a Northeast Jackson doctor. The doctor managed to escape and kill Kennedy's alleged partner Edwin "Guttalife Dee" Robinson.
The victim was going to his truck in the driveway of his Ridgewood home when the two thugs jumped out of a car and held him up at gunpoint around 7:30 AM. The two hoodlums forced the doctor to drive to an ATM and then to some woods at 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. May 2015 post.
The case is assigned to Hinds County Circuit Judge Jeff Weill. Hinds County public defender Chris Routh represents the defendant. Mr. Routh asked the court to dismiss the case after he charged the court had taken more than thirty days to arraign Mr. Kennedy. Judge Weill set Kennedy's trial for August 8, 2016 at 1:30 PM. Judge Weill set his bond at $150,000 ($50,000 per count).
