No more charges for man accused of killing his mother; pastor says woman was a ‘sweet person’

Long said Shields joined the church choir in Gainesville before Long founded Action Word Ministry in Buford about 10 years ago.

Shields’ son, Marcus Alfredo Flores, 33, of Gainesville, now faces other charges related to his mother’s death, including the theft of her debit or credit card, authorities say.

Flores has been charged with malicious murder in the April 4 death of his mother, Angela Shields, 63.

Deputies from the Hall County Sheriff’s Office discovered Shields’ body after a welfare check in the 2100 block of Chicopee Street.

Warrants obtained by The Times last week showed Flores was charged with cutting and slicing Shields’ face, head, back and buttocks.

Sheriff’s Office investigators issued more warrants for murder, aggravated assault, aggravated assault and financial transaction card theft.

Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman BJ Williams said Flores was in possession of a card he “apparently stole from his mother.”

Williams didn’t know what kind of card it was and if there was any evidence he was using it.

Flores was also previously charged with threats and terrorist acts for telling a deputy on April 5 “that (the deputy) was going to die when he left work and that (the) deputy didn’t know who was working for him” , depending on the mandate. .

Williams had no autopsy information, adding that investigators conducted further interviews on Monday, April 11 to determine the timeline leading to Shields’ death.

Defense attorney Andy Maddox did not immediately return a request for comment after previously declining to comment on Thursday, April 7.

Long said he didn’t know Flores particularly well but the man was always respectful to him when they passed each other.
