Defendant landed on Atlanta’s Most Wanted List prior to apprehension in Massachusetts

Atlanta–Fulton County District Attorney Paul L. Howard, Jr., announces the MURDER conviction, by a Fulton County Superior Court Jury, of 29-year-old BREJON NABORS.

In 2018, Brejon Nabors and 32-year-old Mondavius Milan were partners in a bank fraud scheme. Nabors and Milan would deposit fraudulent checks and money orders and then withdraw the funds before the bank reversed the transaction.

The morning of April 3, 2018, Nabors, Milan, and two other individuals drove to a bank to withdraw fraudulent funds from an account. Nabors was in the front passenger seat while Milan sat behind the driver. At some point during the trip, Nabors accused Milan of stealing money from him. Milan denied the accusation, and the two continued to argue. Nabors then brandished a handgun, racked it, and said,

“Where my f%$&*% money at?”

Milan then reached over the driver’s shoulder, grabbed the wheel, and jerked the vehicle off the road. Milan and Nabors proceeded to struggle over the handgun. When the vehicle came to rest in a nearby field, the physical fight between Milan and Nabors spilled out of the car. Nabors eventually gained full control of his weapon and shot Milan in the back and in the abdomen. Milan ran from the area but eventually fell and died in the middle of Campbellton Road in Atlanta.

Nabors got rid of his phone and fled to New Bedford, Massachusetts. Nabors landed on Atlanta’s Most Wanted List as a result of the crime. On May 21, 2018, New Bedford Police served a warrant at the home where Nabors was hiding. When they arrived, the defendant jumped out of the second-floor window and landed upon the roof of an adjacent building. Nabors was apprehended a short time later and was extradited to Atlanta to stand trial. Nabors was previously convicted of Robbery and Theft by Receiving in Cobb County.

NABORS was convicted of MURDER, FELONY MURDER, AGGRAVATED ASSAULT, POSSESSION OF A FIREARM DURING THE COMMISSION OF A FELONY, and POSSESSION OF A FIREARM BY A CONVICTED FELON.

NABORS was sentenced to
Life in Prison plus 5 years

She was assisted by Assistant District Attorney Meredith Fortuna, Investigator Glenn Cross, and Victim-Witness Advocate Kimberley Rodriguez-Mojica of the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office.
