Mother of man killed in Upatoi home invasion facing several drug charges

UPATOI, Ga. (WTVM) - The mother of a man who was killed in a home invasion turned murder is facing several drug-related charges.

21-year-old Cross Henderson was shot inside his mother’s home in 800 block of Upatoi Ridge in January. Six suspects were arrested in connection with this death.

Henderson’s mother, Autumn Tillery, turned herself in to the Columbus Police Department and appeared in court Tuesday. Investigators revealed they found $1 million worth of drugs inside Tillery’s home.

Judge Julius Hunter denied her bond on a slew of drug charges. The judge also denied a request to move Tillery to another cell. Her attorney said she fears for her life because she’s in the same cell with one of the suspects accused of killing her son.

The judge said security will be heightened around the cell.

Tiller was charged with the following.

  • Dextroamphetamine with intent
  • Pregabalin with intent
  • VGCSA SCH IV (Alprazolam)
  • VGCSA SCH II (Oxycotin)
  • LSD with intent
  • Marijuana with intent
  • Methamphetamine with intent
  • Drug related objects
  • Maintaining a disorderly house
