Double Murder – Killed – Alice Stevens (Thunderbolt, GA)

Alice Stevens

Two Savannah men were in custody Friday on murder and related charges in the November 2013 slayings of a Thunderbolt couple outside their home.

Michael Donnta Jones and Nathaniel Willie Wilkins, both 26, were charged Wednesday in a sealed, six-count indictment by the Chatham County grand jury on malice and felony murder counts in the Nov. 3 slayings of Forrest Ison, 27, and Alice Stevens, 24.

The indictment was unsealed Friday.

It charges that both defendants shot the victims — malice murder and felony murder while in the commission of aggravated assaults. It also charges the pair with aggravated assaults on the victims.

Ison and Stevens were shot while they were in the carport area of their single-story home at 3134 Roberson Ave. Ison was pronounced dead at the scene, and Stevens died while being transported to Memorial University Medical Center.

Police responded to the couple’s home after neighbors called 911 about 11:45 p.m. to report a shooting to find Ison and Stevens shot in the carport area outside the one-story house, according to the local newspaper.
