MARIETTA — Sparkles Lashayla Lindsey was indicted Thursday on six charges related to the Oct. 11 death of Kennesaw State University student Kimberly Kilgore.

Authorities say Kilgore, 21, was shot in the head by Lindsey after the two were involved in a road-rage incident along Shiloh Road early in the morning. Kilgore died hours later at WellStar Kenne-stone Hospital. Lindsey, 22, of Austell was indicted on two counts of murder, malice murder, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of a firearm during commission of a felony, said Kim Isaza, of the Cobb County District Attorney’s Office.

Police reported the two women were driving along Shiloh Road in north Cobb when they got into an altercation, which led to a physical confrontation outside of their vehicles in the parking lot of Shiloh Green Apartments.

Kilgore was a Paulding County High School graduate and former member of the sorority Gamma Phi Beta, which had a chapter on KSU’s campus. She worked at the old-fashioned Collett County Store in Powder Springs.

Friends and family said she was outgoing and friendly, and they were devastated by their loss.

The next hearing for Lindsey has not yet been scheduled, but her case is assigned to Cobb Superior Court Judge Reuben Green.

She has been held without bond in a Cobb County jail since Oct. 12, Isaza said.

Lindsey had been previously arrested, and appeared in court last January and February for simple battery charges, according to Cobb Superior Court records.

Her case is being prosecuted by Assistant D.A. Joyette Holmes and Deputy Chief ADA Michael Scott Carlson.

This girl is a career criminal at her young age. Now we have to feed this piece of dirt while she rots in prison! It is disgusting that she ended the life of a beautiful girl with a promising future. I think they should take the other pieces of garbage that were with her and charge them as accomplices.

A tragic loss. The availability of firearms in GA and other states with nearly non existent gun control laws contributed to this murder. We could all live very well if very strict gun control laws were in place.

She broke ALL gun laws. More laws just screw law abiding citizens; "criminals" by definition break the lawn no matter how strict. I think we need to enforce the laws we have...including penalties.

Sorry - but stricter guns laws will not help. Do you really think this idiot cares about following the law? Thugs like this will steal a gun from a law abiding citizen. GUNS DO NOT KILL PEOPLE...PEOPLE KILLS PEOPLE. This idiot already had a record a mile long...do you think she would care about whether her gun was registered or not? Wake up people!! If we put these idiots in jail and let them rot, instead of letting them roam the streets again, maybe some of this violence would end.
