A Canton man has been formally charged by a Cherokee County grand jury with the death of a man outside his Woodstock home.
Brackus Golden, 24, is charged with shooting and killing Kevin Misidi outside his home June 5, according to an indictment filed Aug. 9.
Golden is accused of striking Misidi’s head and face with a firearm and with his hands, and with “dragging and pulling the said Kevin Misidi out of the residence…by the hair” before shooting him in the head, the indictment says.
Golden is also charged with causing swelling and bruising on a woman in the home, per the indictment. According to the sheriff’s office, Golden appeared to have been in a previous relationship with Misidi’s girlfriend who lived with him.
Golden is charged with malice murder, two counts of felony murder, first degree home invasion, three counts of aggravated assault, two counts of aggravated assault family violence, kidnapping with bodily injury, aggravated battery, two counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, battery family violence, and two counts of third degree cruelty to children.
The child cruelty charges stem from a child being at the home at the time of the shooting, according to the indictment.
Misidi, who was 25, was the father of two daughters, according to the organizer of a fundraiser for his family.
Golden remains in Cherokee County custody, and was denied bond in June, according to court documents. He has a court appearance scheduled for Sept. 14.
An indictment is a formal charge of felony offenses, and defendants are assumed innocent until proven guilty.
