Like many kids in their College Park neighborhood, the teens took a dirt path through the woods to get to a grocery store to buy snacks on Apr. 5, 2007. The next day, relatives discovered their naked bodies. They had both been stabbed multiple times with a screwdriver; Kimble had also been raped.

Moody was arrested at a Greyhound bus station a day after the bodies were found.

After the sentencing Moody was transported to the Georgia Diagnostic and Classification Prison in Jackson where he will eventually be executed.
