Boss Kills Two Over Pay Raises
ATLANTA -- The owner of a car dealership killed two employees because they kept asking for pay raises, police said yesterday.
Rolandas Milinavicius was charged in the shooting deaths of Inga Contreras, 25, and Martynas Simokaitis, 28. All three are from the eastern European country of Lithuania but had been living in Atlanta, authorities said.
ASKED FOR MORE PAY
Milinavicius, who was having financial problems, told police he shot the two Thursday after they kept asking for more pay, said police in East Point, which is just outside Atlanta.
Milinavicius, 38, turned himself in two days after the shootings and confessed to the killings, telling police he was under a lot of stress, said East Point police Capt. Russell Popham.
"As I understand, the employees were not really happy about the pay, and they had questioned him about it over the course of time," Popham said. "That morning, he said he just snapped."
At a jailhouse hearing yesterday, Milinavicius listened through an interpreter as the charges were read against him. He faces two counts of felony murder and two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and he was denied bond.
Milinavicius's lawyer, public defender Elizabeth Markowitz, did not speak in court. She did not return a call for comment.
Milinavicius, who had been living in Alpharetta, started RM Auto International two years ago, hoping to meet the demand for American cars in Lithuania. He began shipping cars and later hired the two victims as his only employees.
Nobody was at the car dealership yesterday afternoon. Smashed-up cars with broken windshields and crumpled hoods were scattered around the back of the building.
Lisa Maidel, whose management business is two doors done from Milinavicius's dealership in a strip mall, said Milinavicius's wife came pounding on their door looking for help Thursday afternoon.
Maidel called 911, and the woman kept asking in broken English if her husband was hurt, saying she had seen legs on the floor when she came to the dealership to visit her husband, Maidel said.
FEAR AND TERROR
"We just saw the fear and terror in her eyes," Maidel said. "Every time she tried to describe it, she would just freeze up and hyperventilate."
Contreras and Simokaitis were cremated and an informal memorial service was held at Simokaitis's cousin's apartment over the weekend. The remains were to be flown to Lithuania yesterday.

One thing in the story that I have to question is;
This guy owns a car dealership......and he has a public defender????
Something tells me he is going to go with the temporary insanity plea.......and some dumb jury is going to let him get away with it."An Unarmed man can only flee from evil, and evil is not overcome by fleeing from it." Jeff Cooper
Some people are meant to be the police......Some people are meant to call the police!!!

Thanks for posting I was going to ask for a raise today. I mean after all I was always told "what is the worst they can do, say NO!"
Well I guess that response is out of the Question.

I heard it on a local radio station today before I found the article.
Like usual, can't always believe what you hear and read when it comes to the media.
