Mastermind of 2007 murder will spend life in prison.


The mastermind of the June 12 shooting death of a Milton man was sentenced to life in prison Feb. 11, said Fulton County District Attorney Paul L. Howard, Jr.

Kisha Rutledge, the owner of an Atlanta escort service, was convicted of malice murder, felony murder, aggravated assault, criminal attempt to commit armed robbery and conspiracy for the shooting death of Keith Alan Brown. It was Milton’s first murder, occurring less than a month after the police department launched in May, 2007.

Rutledge fled the state but was captured in 2009 in Houston after being featured on the television program “America’s Most Wanted.”

I want to express how pleased I am that all the parties involved in this crime have been brought to justice,” said Milton Police Chief Deborah Harrell. “I especially want to highlight the determination and hard work of Milton Police Lt. Travis Parker, who led the initial investigation, and the GBI for their invaluable assistance on this case.”
