ELBERTON - An Elberton man arrested on a parole violation after being released from Doctors Hospital in Augusta Tuesday night now faces murder charges.
Once he arrived at the Elbert County Detention Center, Jessie George Simpson, 54, of Oglesby Boulevard in Elberton was served with arrest warrants for murder, aggravated assault and armed robbery.
Simpson is charged in the death of Rodney L. McDuffie at 1048 Porter Drive, which was reported around 4:30 p.m. Sept. 6.
The State Parole Board has placed a hold on Simpson.
