• Woman sentenced for stalking 'Walking Dead' actor, wife


    ATLANTA - A Roswell woman has pleaded guilty to stalking an actor from the popular television series “Walking Dead.”

    Prosecutors alleged Kathryn Boykin harassed "Walking Dead" actor Daniel May and his wife Rachel May.
    The charges stem from an incident in December 2013 outside Synchronicity Theater on Peachtree Street in Atlanta, which is run by Rachel May.
    Boykin was standing outside the theater holding a sign that said “Shut Down Synchronicity” and made several disparaging remarks to Rachel May, the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office said.
    A protective order had been issued against Boykin five months earlier that required her to stay away from the couple.
    The DA’s Office said Boykin's fascination with Daniel May started in December 2006 after attending one of his performances.
    The investigation into Boykin showed she began to harass May and his wife on the internet and social media off and on through December 2013.
    Boykin created several social media accounts to falsely accuse Daniel May of a variety of crimes or spread lies about the couple. She also posted harassing statement on websites and sent harassing emails to the couple.
    When the Mays asked Boykin to stop and she didn’t, the DA’s Office said the couple then filed a protective order against Boykin. She was arrested after being found in contempt of the restraining order.
    Boykin was sentenced to 10 years probation and is permanently restrained from having and contact with Daniel May or his wife. Boykin is also not allowed to use the Internet during her sentence and must maintain mental health medication and treatment.

    Daniel May first appeared in "Walking Dead" in season 3 as the character Allen. His character was killed off in the season 3 finale.
