Pelham man charged with murder in Georgia


DOUGLASVILLE, Ga. (WIAT) —  A Pelham native is facing murder and assault charges in Georgia, accused of running over a woman with his vehicle.

Investigators in Douglasville say Dewey Calhoun Green, 23, rammed into the back of Janice Pitt’s car several times earlier this week. When Pitts got out to look at the damage, witnesses say Green accelerated and pinned her between the two cars, then backed over her. She died on the scene.

Pitts’ daughter and grandchild were in the car at the time.

Green is being held without bond.
