Cedartown, Ga.June 12 2012 - Police have arrested two teenagers in connection with the death of pizza delivery woman Elizabeth Hutcheson, who was stabbed 50 times and bludgeoned as she made a delivery in northwest Georgia.
Hutcheson, a Domino’s Pizza worker and mother of one, was reportedly delivering pizza to a house in Cedartown Thursday night when 18-year-old Cadedra Cook and a 15-year-old boy attacked her. The attackers were arrested Friday after a short foot chase.
Cedartown Assistant Police Chief James Newsome said two officers were conducting a traffic stop around 9 p.m. Thursday when they heard screaming. The officers responded and found Hutcheson with multiple stab wounds.
Newsome says Hucheson was taken to Polk Medical Center where she was pronounced dead.
The suspects were arrested together Friday after a manhunt ended in a local field, the Cedartown Standard newspaper reported.
Records indicate the boy was a troubled teen who left his parents’ home to stay with Cook in March 16.
Suspect Cook lived at the house where Hutcheson delivered the pizza. The name of the teenage boy has not been released to the public. Both teenagers are reportedly in custody in Polk County Jail on murder charges.
