Domino's alleged killer charged with capital murder

MARSHALL (Courtesy Marshall News Messenger/KTBS) - Eric Alexander Mills, who was charged with killing Domino's employee Raymond Dale Gomez and injuring another while trying to rob the restaurant, has been indicted for capital murder by a Harrison County grand jury.

"He was indicted for three separate victims," said Harrison County District Attorney Coke Solomon.

In addition to the capital murder of 21-year-old Gomez, the grand jury also indicted Mills, 25, for the aggravated robbery of Domino's employees, Lottie A. Langer and Summer Dawn-Rene Scott, who were also working in the restaurant during the course of the robbery, which occurred on Dec. 7.

According to the indictment, he shot Ms. Langer, injuring her. Ms. Scott was unharmed, but present during the time he robbed the store and shot her co-workers. The indictment accuses Mills of placing Ms. Scott in fear of imminent bodily injury or death, brandishing a firearm.

Since Mills was previously convicted on Nov. 3, 2006, for the felony offense of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, the grand jury also indicted him for the offense of unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon, which is a third degree felony. He was also indicted for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon against Ms. Langer, an expectant mother.

Solomon said they were able to present Mills' case to the grand jury quickly because the incident and arrest occurred a few days before the grand jury was set to convene.

"We had a grand jury already set," he said. "Therefore, we presented it to the grand jury and they returned a (quick) indictment."

He applauded the police department on a job well done in investigating the incident and locating the suspect for arrest.

"They did an excellent job of developing the case and resolving it in a quick period of time," praised Solomon.

Mills was arraigned by Pct. 1 Justice of the Peace Judge Westy Meisenheimer; his bond was set at $1 million.
