CLAYTON COUNTY, Ga. - Clayton County deputies have arrested a woman accused of setting up a victim in an armed robbery that went wrong.
Officials tell FOX 5 that the investigation began after officers got reports of a person shot on the 6,300 block of Old Dixie Road on Aug. 30.
When they got to the location, officers found 36-year-old Loik Tyler dead inside. Surveillance footage showed that Tyler was with a woman before he died.
