Marquis Torez Lowe Sentenced to Life Without Parole for Murder
Friday, 10 February 2012
Marquis Torez Lowe, 27, of Warner Robins was found guilty by a Houston County jury on an eight count indictment for the brutal slaying last March of 19 year old Dejohn Milton. Lowe was convicted of the offenses of malice murder, two counts of felony murder, aggravated assault, aggravated battery, and three counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime. He was sentenced by Houston Superior Court Judge Katherine Lumsden to life in prison without the possibility of parole, plus five years to serve consecutive for the firearms charges.
Lowe, along with a co-defendant Trey Dinkins, shot Milton nine times with a .380 pistol on March 20, 2011 near an apartment complex in Warner Robins. Milton was alive at the scene and was able to identify one of the shooters to a witness. He sustained massive internal injuries to the heart, lung, liver, and spine, and died hours later during emergency surgery.
After the shooting, Lowe and Dinkins were observed hiding two pistols near the scene of the shooting. The pistols were recovered, and one of them was found to be the .380 that was used to shoot Milton. Cell phone evidence also linked Lowe to both the victim and the scene of the shooting. Lowe was arrested nine days later hiding in a closet at the home of one of his girlfriends. A loaded 40 caliber pistol was also recovered during his arrest.
Deputy Chief Assistant District Attorney Daniel P. Bibler was the lead prosecutor on the case. He along with Assistant D. A. Julia Bowen presented the evidence during the four day trial which resulted in the conviction. "This is a tragic case involving the senseless waste of life for no reason," said Bibler. "I'm pleased that Lowe will be spending the rest of his life in prison. The people of this county deserve to be safe on the streets, and this sentence serves notice that we will fight for justice when an innocent person loses his life at the hands of another."
Lowe was represented by Attorney Russell Walker of Perry. Questions about the case may be directed to Daniel P. Bibler at the District Attorney's Office (478-218-4810).
