Teens Bound To Grand Jury On 1st-Degree Murder Charges In "Sex For Drugs" Case

Friday, January 8, 2016

Two teens have been bound to the Grand Jury in a "sex for drugs" case that wound up with 21-year-old Peyton Hogan being shot and killed.

Prosecutor Lance Pope introduced Facebook messaging between 18-year-old Shaina Hughes and Hogan in which she sent him her photo and he sent two pictures of ICE Meth he was bringing to a residence in East Brainerd.

Also charged in the case is 19-year-old Quincy Goodine, who a witness said shot Hogan in the chest in the incident last Nov.

13 at a home in the 400 block of Frazier Drive. 

It was testified that Hogan showed Ms. Hughes a photo of the share of the Meth she was to get and said "depending on how things go, maybe more."

A witness, Joshua Santana, said he went to the residence of Naomi Bunton after using drugs earlier in the day and doing more, including marijuana and meth, for two hours at a hotel in East Ridge.

He said on Frazier Drive there was more marijuana and meth. He said present were Ms. Bunton, Ms. Hughes and Goodine.

He said there was discussion about Hogan wanting drugs for sex from Ms. Hughes. He said he had never met Hogan.

He said Ms. Hughes was upset about the proposition that was put on Facebook, and there began to be talk of a robbery. He said later Ms. Bunton said it was getting too late and Ms. Hughes said she was going to message Hogan not to come. Santana said he told them a robbery was "a bad idea."

Prosecutor Pope said police obtained the Facebook pages of Ms. Hughes and Hogan and there was no mention of him not coming. At one point, he said Hogan said, "I'm on my way" and Ms. Hughes "gave him a thumbs up." He said one notation showed Hogan's location on a map and said he would be arriving in 11 minutes. He said Ms. Hughes got up to let him in and followed him down some basement stairs. He said Ms. Hughes sent a text to Goodine to "be ready."

Santana said when Hogan came down the steps that Goodine got up and made some statement. He earlier told police that Goodine said, "Give me all you got."

The witness said Hogan "bucked him" and appeared to possibly have a knife. He earlier said Hogan was unarmed.

Goodine then fired with the bullet hitting the victim in the chest. Santana said Hogan ran back upstairs, but he collapsed by the time he reached his truck. He said he walked over to him and could see he was dying.

He said those at the house then took off, vowing that "everybody stick together." He said they went to a Waffle House, then got a ride with a stranger to Gordon County, Ga., where several of them were later arrested following a disorder at a residence.

Detective Matthew Puglise said the 25 caliber handgun that was used was located stuck in a compartment in the house where the shooting took place.

He said the victim was still breathing when police arrived at the scene in the early-morning incident, but he was pronounced dead at Erlanger Hospital.

The pair appeared before General Sessions Court Judge Clarence Shattuck.

Ms. Bunton was in the news in February 2014 when she was a 13-year-old runaway. She later returned home.
