Two Arraigned In Molino Related Murder

May 31, 2013

Two people were arraigned Thursday in connection with a Molino-related murder.

Zachary Greer and Debra Burge, both 22, pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder charges in the death of Harvey Ray Smith. They are set for trial in August.

The body of  Smith, age 43 of Pace, was found stuffed into a trunk behind a Motel 6 on Davis Highway the morning on May4. Smith had been reported missing in Santa Rosa County. Family members located his vehicle at the motel and then discovered the body.

Reports state Burge and Greer conspired to rob Smith. Burge allegedly lured Smith, her acquaintance, to her home in the 3900 block of Highway 97 in Molino. She told deputies she went inside while Smith and Greer remained outside. When she later exited the home, she found Smith on the ground of the Molino home bleeding. She told Sheriff’s investigators that Greer told her he stabbed Smith and put his body in the trunk of the car that was later driven to the Motel 6 on Davis Highway in Pensacola.

    I do not feel sorry for these two kids not one bit. from what i have heard they killed a real good person just so they could rob him. sounds like premeditated murder to me . all due to laziness todays kids do not want to get a job this goes to show you what video games all the time and giving a kid what they want all the time gets you. i know another set of kids that lured another kid that had money away from his house and they almost beat him to death too just to rob him. it is so sad . i always used to hear the phrase what is this country coming to while i was growing up but i now truly wonder just exactly what kind of society we will be living in 20 years from now . with this kjnd of behaviour by tomorrows parents what about when their kids grow up and keep the cycle going. God help us all.

    You lure a man to his death, rob and murder him and then all of a sudden you are guilty of nothing.

    It would be interesting to see the parents whom instilled such values and philosophies in these two.

    It would be interesting to see the lawyers who advised them to plead not guilty.
    It would be of further interest to see the DA who refused to deal.
