Georgia Man Commits Horrific Murder, Later Attacks Cellmate


Last year in DeKalb County, Georgia, a man was found guilty of committing a horrifying series of crimes: Donte Lamar Wyatt was convicted of murder, rape, three counts of aggravated assault, first degree burglary, false imprisonment, theft by taking, criminal trespass, and aggravated sodomy.

The authorities say that Donte raped a 37-year-old woman and strangled her with a scarf. The victim, Catherine Montoya, who was a LGBT activist, was killed in April of 2015. At the time of the murder of Montoya, she was about three months pregnant. Wyatt was found guilty and also charged with home invasion and was sentenced by the judge to four life sentences, plus 41 years. He was sentenced to the first three life sentences without parole.

After Wyatt was arrested for the murder of Montoya, he was charged with attacking his cellmate after he strangled Jah’Corey Tyson on July 4, 2015, and removed his eye balls. In September of 2015 Wyatt pleaded not guilty for the incident that happened in the jailhouse.
