The Associated Press has uncovered new information in court filings about a suspected serial killer accused of fatally shooting a woman in Decatur on Dec. 6.

The AP report says that Presley told investigators he was remorseful after the Decatur murder and decided to quit murdering people to pursue an acting career.

Aeman Lovel Presley was scheduled to have his first appearance in DeKalb County Superior Court on Monday, April 20. Presley is accused of murdering two people in DeKalb: Karen Pearce in Decatur on Dec. 6 and Calvin Gholston on Sept. 27. He also faces charges of murdering two homeless men in Fulton County, Dorian Jenkins, on Nov. 23, and Tommy Mims, on Nov. 26.

The AP story says Pearce did everything Presley asked her to do. She gave him her wallet. Presley shot Pearce in the chest, the story says. Presley told investigators he didn’t get a “rush” from Pearce’s death that he had gotten from the deaths of the three homeless men, the AP story says. To read the full story, click here.

Prosecutors have said they are seeking the death penalty for Presley if he is convicted.
