Georiga deputies have arrested a suspect in the murder of a woman and her unborn child found after a car crash in Troup County.

The shooting happened after noon on Oct. 5 along Highway 18 near E. Drummond Road. Troup County deputies arrived at the scene to find 29-year-old Akeila Ware’s Honda Accord crashed into a tree with multiple bullet holes in the side. 

Ware was rushed to a nearby hospital in critical condition, where she later died.

At the time, deputies said they didn’t believe the shooting was random, calling it “very bold, very cold, and very callous.”

Wednesday, Troup County deputies traveled to North Carolina to arrest Alonzo Dargan Jr. The suspect is now in the Troup County Jail charged with two counts of murder and one count of possession of a firearm during the commission of felonies.
