Atlanta Madame Convicted in Milton Murder

FULTON COUNTY, GA -- The owner of an Atlanta escort service has been sentenced to life in prison for the 2007 murder of a Milton man.

Kisha Rutledge was sentenced by Fulton County Superior Court Judge Marvin Arrington on Friday, Feb. 11. She was convicted of Malice Murder, Felony Murder, Aggravated Assault, Criminal Attempt to Commit Armed Robbery and Conspiracy for the shooting death of Keith Alan Brown.

Brown was murdered in his Milton apartment on June 12, 2007. Investigators say that co-defendants Jeff Dulcio and Stephen Woods tried to break into Brown's home to steal money. They were working under the direction of Rutledge, who believed that Brown had thousands of dollars in cash in the home.

In self-defense, Brown began shooting at Dulcio and Woods. One of them shot back before fleeing the scene; Brown managed to call 911 for help before dying from a gunshot wound.

Other residents of Brown's apartment complex heard the shots and saw the defendants leaving the scene.

A fourth defendant, Michelle Morrison, drove Rutledge, Dulcio and Woods to Brown's apartment; she and Rutledge waited in the car while the men went inside.

In 2009, Dulcio and Morrison were convicted of Felony Murder, Aggravated Assault, Criminal Attempt to Commit Armed Robbery and Conspiracy in the case. They were both sentenced to life in prison plus five years.

Woods pled guilty to Criminal Attempt to Commit Armed Robbery and a weapons charge in 2009. As part of his plea agreement, he was sentenced to 15 years in prison.

Rutledge was featured on "America's Most Wanted" a number of times. She was captured in Houston, Texas in August of 2009 after an AMW viewer recognized her and called the police.
