Lawanda Montez Haskell was accused of helping a man wanted by authorities.

Lawanda Montez Haskell, of the 3500 block of Wyevale Road, was arrested Saturday evening and charged with harboring or concealing a fugitive and making false statements in a government matter, Lt. Scott Peebles said in an e-mail Monday. The two felony charges stem from her alleged involvement in helping Adrian Tywan "Goose" Hargrove, 30, of the 3500 block of Edgeworth Drive, evade capture.

Responding to a call from Mr. Hargrove's estranged wife, Richmond County Investigators found the bodies of Andrew Hartley, 45, and his wife, 46-year-old Sharon Hartley, at their Bennock Mill Road home. The body of Mr. Hartley's stepdaughter, five-months pregnant Allyson Pederson, 18, was discovered badly burned off Lock and Dam Road near the Augusta Regional Airport.

Mr. Hargrove, 30, was charged with three counts of murder, and officials are awaiting the result of today's autopsy to determine whether he could face an additional charge of feticide in the death of Ms. Pederson's unborn child.

Ms. Haskell "continually" provided false information about the case and the suspect's whereabouts, said Lt. Peebles, a violent crimes investigator. She also is accused of driving Mr. Hargrove to the scene where Ms. Pederson's body had been taken.

Investigator Tom Johnson said they are not sure what sparked Mr. Hargrove's violent rampage. But state records show he had a history of violence, including a cruelty to children charge that was part of a seven-year sentence that began in 1999.

According to the Georgia Department of Corrections, Mr. Hargrove was charged with cruelty to children in Franklin County, Ga. He was released from prison in March 2006. A year later, he was charged with third-degree cruelty to children and second-degree criminal damage to property in Burke County, according to a Burke County sheriff's report.

What in the h@ll was she

What in the h@ll was she thinking, I would have gave him up in a heart beat. And he has a cruelty to children charge he served time for. Women start doing background checks on these idiots. They showed her picture, but what does stupid look like.

I pray for the family of the victims. It's bad enough to lose anybody that you love but to lose them in such a cruel way.

Why was he on the streets

Why was he on the streets anyway? He had already served time for cruelty to children got and did it again, he should never been allowed back on the street after he was charged the second time. This is why are children can even play in their own yards.....monsters like this.

This woman probably believes in her world that he had a good reason for what he did, like 'she asked for it, it was her fault'.

Excuse me thugskin but this

Excuse me thugskin but this is not what happens in interacial relationships.....I have been in an interacial marriage for 23 years as have many of our friends so don't sit here and pretend to know about something that you don't know. This happened because this criminal was a mean SOB that didn't care about taking a life. It's about character, not what race the person you are with is.......typical mentality though......

"thugskin" is it? Please find

"thugskin" is it? Please find a new thing! Race has nothing to do with what happened. It is obvious that this man was and is unstable and the individual that aided him has issues as well.

How does any one know if race

How does any one know if race was a factor? None of us are seers. Such harsh judgements we make regarding the opinions of others.

Like I stated, thugskins

Like I stated, thugskins remark did not surprise me, that is probably the mentality of alot of people, he was just bold enough to put it out here. This man was just cold and heartless if he indeed did what he was accused of doing. Who knows the woman they arrested may have been scared for her life as well, we just don't know enough facts right now to make that conclusion.

ahhh... were the murder

ahhh... were the murder victims white? If so ..well said 5:00smwhr and I agree....but this man BRUTALY slaughtered 3 people and one of them a YOUNG pregnant woman.....just to show the differences in the way things are done if that monster had been white and the dead folks black....there would be HATE CRIME !!splashed all over the papers..and the revs. sharpton and jackson would be hightailing it down here to get their mugs on camera.....why is that??? And why is it that because I am saying what most are too damned PC to say (but are thinking) I will be called racist? It is not racist to state truth.

I agree that when race is an issue it is very often one sided, nothing we can do to change that. But for a person to say that something happened just because it was an interacial relationship is ridiculous. There are lots of interacial relationships whether black/white, black/hispanic, white/asian, whatever, that thrive in this country and others. This man was just a coldhearted killer. he would have probably done the same thing if the family were black, a person like him doesn't care.......

Good idea Rose, but it still

Good idea Rose, but it still doesn't promise safety, unfortunately people are sometimes just mean and sometimes they just snap but it is a good idea to check and you can also look them up in the GA prison system records to see if they ever served time for anything. Good luck to your daughter. I will certainly check it for my daughter.

It would be a good idea for these young women to check out who they are getting involved with, but after being in law enforcement for the past twenty years, to many of these girls, it wouldn't matter any way. They go for the bad boy image and for those who do, shouldn't be surprised when something like this happens.

It doesn't matter, white

It doesn't matter, white ,black,green .yellow, this piece of crap and his sorry [filtered word] friend murdered three people . they are dead and for the next 25 years we will have to feed and clothe this fine upstanding couple so they can appell there asses off while the other three are still DEAD! this fine piece of trash that helped this fine upstanding man will probably cry and beg that he made her help and it was all his fault. she didn't want to do it because she was scared. You know he is a brave person when it comes to children. so she must have the mind set of a child.

It's not about race, its about taking the life of another. What this person did to this family is cruel, very cruel. Considering the hurt that his mother and family are going through. This shows he has no consideration for life. So lets stop with the race issue.

I agree this ain't racial

I agree this ain't racial it's someone who chose to take lives of others (motive unknown until investigated) The woman who decided to aid and abet this knucklehead should be searchin her own soul at this time as this event will haunt them both!! Nothing is more precious than the gift of life and to have it taken away in such a violent way is a tragedy in itself! Pray for the victims and their families in this and may just and swift punnishment follow for the people responsible for this!! GOD HELP US ALL!!!

Sometimes you can just look at people and tell their character. Take a good look at the picture. Now close your eyes and picture Goose. Only one word come to mind. STUPID!
