ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – A 22 year old man tried to enter a guilty plea inside of a Dekalb County courtroom, but was forced not to by his public defender.
Eugene Quatron McCoy, who is accused in the stabbing deaths of three members of his family, raised his hand and said he wanted to plead guilty Friday when a judge called his name. The judge and his lawyer talked to him and his lawyer entered a not guilty plea.
McCoy was indicted in December on charges of killing his mother, stepsister and stepbrother in April at their Lithonia home.
McCoy’s mother had two restraining orders against her son, but he was still living in her home. McCoy had been arrested six times prior to the deadly attack, twice for allegedly violating family violence orders.
