TUCKER, Ga. (AP) - A suspect in the death of a DeKalb County police officer who died in a traffic accident is set to make his first court appearance.
WXIA-TV reports that 27-year-old George Lee Harvey Jr. of Stone Mountain is scheduled to appear in court Monday morning. Harvey turned himself in to authorities and faces charges of felony murder, felony theft by receiving motor vehicle, and misdemeanor reckless driving.
Officer Ivorie Klusmann died Saturday as he and other officers tried to find Harvey, who police say fled after a traffic stop. Klusmann's patrol car ran off the road and hit a tree near the intersection of DeKalb Medical Parkway and Heritage Park Trail outside Atlanta.
