Teen murder suspect out on bond arrested after high-speed chase

- A teen who was charged with murder, then released on bond is now back in the DeKalb County Jail. Doraville Police picked up 18-year-old Antonio Wilson after a high-speed chase on Interstate 285.

Wilson and two others were arrested for the November 2017 murder of Tre Griffin in Stone Mountain. All three have been released on $90,000 bond.

Tre Griffin's mother, Sessenay Griffin, says there's something wrong with the system.

"I don't know if the system fails everybody, but I feel like it failed me," said Griffin.

Griffin said as painful as it was to go to the arraignments and bond hearings, she made a point of doing it for her son. She was stunned when the bond was granted.

"I was very insulted and I didn't understand how someone who is charged with murder can get out on bond," said Griffin.

None of it makes sense to Griffin, especially now that Wilson has been arrested again.

Dash cam video from Doraville Police shows a vehicle with a broken back window speeding down I-285 Thursday night. Police said the car was going close to 100 mph, weaving in and out of traffic. Police said the car was stolen and Antonio Wilson was in the driver's seat.

"The let him out to kill someone else because that's what could have happened," said Griffin.

Griffin said Wilson never should have been granted bond. The DeKalb County District Attorney's office said the state objected to a bond being granted in the amount of $90,000 and said the decision to grant or deny bond is the sole discretion of the court.

Wilson was in the DeKalb County Jail as of Thursday being held without bond.
