Man charged with murder in shooting death of Sierra Rhodd

Rhodd, a 20-year-old with disabilities was shot and killed last month while lying in her bed. 

The victim, who suffered from cerebral palsy, died after being hit by multiple gunshots as she lie in bed. 

Investigators believe the motive was to shoot the victim's 15-year-old brother for an on-going feud he had with several individuals.

McCalla has been identified as the boyfriend of an 18-year-old woman who investigators initially believed to be a suspect in Sierra's death.

During the investigation, detectives examined the scene and found several fire casings lying in the front yard, rear side yard, as well as the roadway in front of the home in question. These casings consist of at least four different calibers—approximately 40 to 60 fired casings in total.

Surveillance video showed three vehicles at the time of the shooting which included a dark-colored sedan, a pickup truck, and a motorcycle. Witnesses reported seeing a red pickup truck and a dark-colored sedan race away from the scene.


Police then pulled over a red truck, owned by McCalla, and arrested Presler, who was inside. Presler was arrested and charged in the case but was released due to a lack of probable cause.

Further investigation and witness interviews led to the three men arrested.
