Thursday the Federal Bureau of Investigation issued a news release from the Atlanta Police Department that said March 19, 2012, thirty-four year old Kimberly Laverne Ward was charged with attempted murder for reportedly shooting her ex-boyfriend once in the chest in an apartment on Holly Street in Atlanta. He had to be placed on a ventilator to survive.
For more than two years she was the only woman on the Top 10 Most Wanted list. Police say she was recently found living in Savannah.
A couple of months after the shooting she got a job at the Claxton Poultry plant working as a tray packer according to Mark Bland, human resources director at the plant.
Lt Terry Joyner, commander of APD’s fugitive unit, said Ward was finally located by using technology and social media.
Charges against Ward include one count each of aggravated battery and kidnapping and two counts of aggravated assault.
Ward was arrested at her job Tuesday and is now in the Fulton County Jail in Atlanta to face those charges.
The Atlanta Police Department credited Ward’s arrest to the dedication of the lead investigator and cooperation between the Atlanta Fugitive Unit and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
