Car Dealer Accused of Killing 2 Workers
ATLANTA — A finacially strapped owner of a car dealership told authorities he was under stress when he killed two employees because they kept asking for pay raises, police said Tuesday.

Rolandas Milinavicius was charged in the shooting deaths of Inga Contreras, 25, and Martynas Simokaitis, 28. All three are from the eastern European nation of Lithuania but had been living in Atlanta, authorities said.

Milinavicius, who was having financial problems, told police he shot the two Thursday after they kept asking for more pay, said police in East Point, which is just outside Atlanta.

Milinavicius, 38, turned himself in two days after the shootings and confessed to the killings, telling them he was under a lot of stress, East Point police Capt. Russell Popham said.

"As I understand, the employees were not really happy about the pay, and they had questioned him about it over the course of time," Popham said. "That morning he said he just snapped."

At a jailhouse hearing Tuesday, Milinavicius listened through an interpreter as the charges were read against him. He faces two counts of felony murder and two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and he was denied bond.

Milinavicius' attorney, public defender Elizabeth Markowitz, did not speak in court. She did not return a call for comment.

Milinavicius, who had been living in Alpharetta, started RM Auto International two years ago, hoping to meet the demand for American cars in Lithuania. He began shipping cars and later hired the two victims as his only employees.

Nobody was at the car dealership Tuesday afternoon. Smashed-up cars with broken windshields and crumpled hoods were scattered around the back of the building.

Lisa Maidel, whose management business is two doors done from Milinavicius' dealership in a strip mall, said Milinavicius' wife came pounding on their door looking for help Thursday afternoon.

Maidel called 911, and the woman kept asking in broken English if her husband who was hurt, saying she had seen legs on the floor when she came to the dealership to visit her husband, Maidel said.

"We just saw the fear and terror in her eyes," Maidel said. "Every time she tried to describe it, she would just freeze up and hyperventilate."

Contreras and Simokaitis were cremated and an informal memorial service was held at Simokaitis' cousin's apartment over the weekend. The remains were to be flown to Lithuania on Tuesday.

"It doesn't make any sense," the cousin, Jaunius Simokaitis, of Fayetteville, said Monday. "If he was having money problems, these two would have been the ones to help him get out of debt. They would have helped him make that money."

I can understand why a guy could snap like that. . . nothing like some bitch in your office fucking running her mouth at you 90-miles per minute to make you feel like your getting ready to "stroke-out".

Sounds like my old douchebag of a boss. He'd fistfight a 5-year old over a penny that someone dropped on the ground.

That's your problem right there folks. Learn english you stupid fuck, maybe then you'll get some customers who want to work with you, in ATLANTA of all places. It amazes me when people who never bothered to learn proper english freak out because their businesses are failing. Its because you can't communicate.

He's gonna learn "Toss my salad" soon enough.

You want a raise here's your raise mother fuckers blam blam blam.

While I'm not condoning the guys actions I can definitley relate to the stress.
It can become all consuming when your the owner of any business with bills piling up creditors at your door. My hats off to any business owner who doesn't crack under the strain.

He should have just told them what the rest of the bosses tell their employees: If you don't like what I pay you, go work someplace else.

Is it really murder if the victim is Lithuanian? I still think the Michael Vick thing is worse.
