The story began, according to news reports and arrest warrants, after 1 a.m. on Sunday, June 30, when Joshua Chellew, 36, an unmarried, redheaded white man stopped at a Chevron station in Mableton, Georgia, where he lives. According to the 19-year-old woman who was waiting in Chellew's car, he went into the gas station to get something.
