Word came down today that Warren Ullom, best known around town as the singer and guitarist for the Judies, plead guilty to the charge of voluntary manslaughter and received a 20-year prison sentence.
According to a press release from the office of the Fulton County District Attorney Paul L. Howard, Jr.
The case involved the death of Rachel San Inocencio, a 32-year old female who had met the defendant only a few days before her death. On June 6, 2008, she went to the defendant’s apartment where the two engaged in heroin use. The victim suddenly became critically ill from the drugs, but Ullom refused to seek medical attention on her behalf. He instead called a friend to bring some cocaine over, and as the victim lay unconscious for hours, he injected her twice with cocaine in an attempt to revive her from the heroin overdose.
The friend who brought the cocaine over eventually left and called 911 to summon help for the woman since Defendant Ullom refused to do so. However, the friend gave an incorrect address and the ambulance was unable to locate her. Warren Ullom then sent a text to his friend stating, “She is better. No Ambulance”. The victim died approximately thirty minutes after Ullom’s text- prompting him to finally call 911 for an ambulance. He then placed the remaining cocaine baggies in the victim’s purse, and asked the police to remove her purse from his apartment. The investigation later revealed that Ullom also stole the victim’s diamond earrings and pawned them just three days after her death.
UPDATE: In a June 8 statement, the Judies' management team contests the DA's press release:
The DAs press release is inaccurate. Warren's girlfriend at the time, Julia Simmons, pawned the earrings but later became a witness for the state. According to Ullom, she told Warren that they were from her grandmother's estate. Warren grew up working in his father's pawn shop and would have never, ever been foolish enough to pawn those earrings had he known whose they were. The state dropped the theft charges against Warren Ullom, so I find it a disingenuous for them to include those charges in a press release about his guilty plea to Voluntary Manslaughter.
