LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. - Gwinnett County police said the man accused of killing a Gwinnett County woman inside her
home was one of the woman's neighbors.
Police said it was a brutal and senseless attack inside the Lawrenceville-area home.
On Monday, investigators told Channel 2's Kerry Kavanaugh that Parvis Moledina, 64, was stabbed 20-30 times.
The primary suspect is a man who lived just a few doors down on Alamein Drive.
Eric Bolling, 21, has been charged with felony murder and theft by receiving.
"Everybody in our neighborhood is concerned about this," neighbor Sisay Meshesha said.
Kavanaugh found him taking extra precautions. Meshesha said he called his security company Monday morning to make sure his home alarm was intact.
The homicide investigation began last Wednesday when concerned neighbors called police. They said Moledina's garage door
had been left open for two days. Her car was gone.
Police tracked the car down Thursday outside Sugarloaf Mills Mall. They said evidence inside the car led them to the suspects.
"When they searched the homes of these two suspects, they actually found some of the victim's property inside the homes," said Cpl. Jake Smith with Gwinnett County
Police said Bolling was working with Justin Eldrige, 20. Police have only charged Eldridge with felony theft by receiving, not murder.
"I'm just worried about my family's safety now," neighbor Aubrey Reed said.
Reed said someone broke into his home just a couple of weeks ago.
"They (Bolling and Eldridge) are suspects in several other burglaries in the area but we don't have anything to actually charge them with those crimes right now," Smith said.
Police said what happened inside Moledina's home may have begun as a burglary. They don't know why it escalated to such a gruesome crime.
