Mauldin reportedly picked up his girlfriend in Norcross but, later, when she wanted to get out he pointed a gun at her and wouldn’t let her leave.
Reportedly the two went to a hotel in Moody, Alabama, near Birmingham. She got word to hotel staff that she had been kidnapped and Mauldin fled.
Mauldin is wanted after two people were shot to death at a home Chattooga County.
Mauldin is accused of killing 35-year-old Joe Edward Brown and his 61-year-old mother Linda Mae Everett Tuesday morning.
Joe Brown was employed at Nissin Brake in Rock Spring. Linda Brown was employed at Mohawk.

Marsh is currently at a local hospital where he has underwent two surgeries. Sources close to Marsh told AllOnGeorgia, “…he was shot in his cheek and (the bullet) went through his neck and into his shoulder..he is not out of the woods yet.”
All three victims resided at 13023 Highway 100 in Chattooga County near the Floyd County line. Sheriff Schrader said there were no signs of forced entry or of a home invasion.
