A Georgia woman was sentenced to life in prison plus five years on Friday for the murder of a man who was occasionally staying in her apartment as a roommate’s guest at the time.

Christie Montgomery, 35 years old, lives in Stone Mountain, Ga. Located in DeKalb County, near the Atlanta metropolitan area. On May 17, 2018, she came home early in the morning and accused her roommate and two others of stealing marijuana from her.

The defendant is said to have told everyone in the apartment to leave after making the angry allegation. Everyone complied with that request – at least at first. Montgomery’s roommate forgets his cell phone and then returns to the apartment to retrieve it. The housemate’s search of the apartment then sent Montgomery into a fit of rage. That’s when the defendant took the gun and shot the 23-year-old girl Justice Jackson in the chest in a bitter and deadly argument.

Jackson occasionally stayed in the apartment with the defendant’s roommate – and all four people involved knew each other.

The roommate, who had rented her room from Montgomery, and her other friend ran away to call 911. The victim’s body was taken to a nearby hospital by first responders to battle it out. his wound.

“She retrieved her gun, walked out, and shot Jackson once in the chest,” said DeKalb County District Attorney’s Office said in a statement to Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “The victim fell to the ground, pulled out a weapon and opened fire. His shot didn’t hit anyone.”

Montgomery then went back inside and locked the door.

They said police arrived where the defendant was barricaded inside, because Montgomery refused law enforcement access to the residence she also shared with her child, who had been at home for long periods of time.

Hours later, the police entered the door.

Montgomery told investigators she came home to find the money stolen and kicked out her roommate, Jackson and their mutual friend. She asserted that the shooting started after the door to her room had been closed and that she had washed her hands. The defendant was charged with murder later that same day.

The police were not sure at first about the nature of the argument between the accused and the dead man. During the trial, however, prosecutors pointed to the underlying motive for the marijuana dispute. A few years later, that’s the story of the day.

On Monday, Montgomery was found guilty by a jury of malicious murder, felony murder, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm while committing a felony, according to WAGA local Fox branch.

Victim’s obituary record the imprints of his life and the life he planned:

Justice graduated in 2013 from Lanett High School. He plays basketball, wears the number 11 shirt and is a key player on the team. During the 2011-12 school year, the Lanett High School Panthers won the regional championship and Justice was named Lanett High School offensive player of the year. After graduating, he went to Alabama State University in Montgomery, AL and then decided to pursue his passion as a photographer.

He is survived by his parents and 12 siblings.
