Police responded to the Cumberland Oaks apartment complex shortly after 7 p.m. Monday, finding that 24-year-old Jimeshia Bryanna Gordon had been shot and her 14-month-old child had been injured in building F.

Gordon died after being flown to UF Health Shands in Jacksonville, Fla. The child suffered an injury to her forehead. She was treated and released Monday atSoutheast Georgia Health System, Camden Campus.

Couple charged with burglary

As a result of the search for Wilson, two other St. Marys residents are facing felony charges.

Khaylah Dominique Gaylor, 25, and Myquan Tyree Gaylor, 26, have been charged with burglary and possession of tools for the commission of a crime, which are both felonies.

Three Camden County Sheriff’s Office deputies went to Wilson’s St. Marys home at 1:37 a.m. Tuesday to see if he was there.

They found the front door of the house open and saw two people wearing plastic gloves leave the house by the back door. The Gaylors were detained and searched. Deputies found six packs of cigarillos, four pills of Aleve, an electronic scale, two plastic gloves, a flashlight and a putty knife.

Deputies asked the Gaylors, who live next door where their three children were sleeping, what they were doing in the house.

“They stated that about three days ago the owner — who they did not know the name of — said they could go in and get some dog food,” according to the incident report.

No dog food was found in the house.

A deputy asked to check the house to ensure the children were safe and Wilson was not there. Khaylah Gaylor agreed.

“Once inside the residence, I observed that the residence was extremely dirty and that a dog was being kept in the dining room in a cage, note that the dog looked extremely skinny,” Deputy Joseph Sheets wrote in his report.

Animal control was called to pick up the dog and a relative came for the children.

As of Wednesday, the Gaylors are being held in the Camden jail on a $25,700 bond each.
