By DeAnn Komanecky
Robin Heidt Cave, wanted on contempt of court charges, turned herself in at the Effingham County Sheriff’s office about 5 p.m. today.

Cave had been hunted by deputies since Friday afternoon after the order for her arrest was issued by Judge F. Gates Peed.

Effingham County Sheriff’s office spokesman David Ehsanipoor said Cave’s arrest was ordered after a $2,904 check Cave was ordered to pay to the court was returned as insufficient. Cave, who recently remarried, is the widow of murder victim Carey Heidt.

Cave is being held pending her next court appearance.

The Effingham County Sheriff’s office is currently searching for Robin Heidt Cave under orders from the court.

Superior Court Judge F. Gates Peed signed an order of arrest on Friday after a check Cave was ordered to pay to the court was returned as insufficient. Robin Heidt Cave, who recently remarried, is the widow of murder victim Carey Heidt.

Cave was given until noon on Friday to replace the check with certified funds.

“Upon failure an order for her arrest was signed,” Effingham County Sheriff’s office spokesman David Ehsanipoor said.

Ehsanipoor said deputies had been searching for Cave since that time.

“If anyone knows her location they should contact the sheriff’s office at 754-3449,” Ehsanipoor said.

Carey Heidt and his father, Philip Heidt were shot to death in Aug. 2008. Philip Heidt’s wife, Linda Heidt was also shot, but survived.

Craig Heidt, son of Philip and Linda Heidt, was convicted of the murders last year.

Judge Peed is schedule to hear a motion filed by Craig Heidt’s defense attorney for a new trial Monday morning.

The sheriff’s office had no details on why Cave was ordered to pay funds to the court, but it is believed to be related to child custody issues.

These are not in order but the 48 Hours video explains it all. Very interesting case.

There's something about this woman that's bothered me from the get go. Her hands are not clean in the murders, whether it's accessory after the fact or something worse. JMOO.

Normal UPDATE: Georgia Supreme Court upholds Craig Heidt murder convictions

Post by NiteSpinR on Tue May 28, 2013 4:47 pm

January 8, 2013

The Georgia Supreme Court on Monday unanimously upheld the Effingham County double-murder convictions of Craig Heidt in the deaths of his father and brother.

Craig Heidt was found guilty following a jury trial in December 2010 for the deaths of his father, Philip Martin Heidt, 59, and his brother, Carey Albert Heidt, 32. He was also convicted of shooting his mother, Linda Heidt, who was gravely injured but survived the attack.

Craig Heidt is being held in Macon State Prison in Oglethorpe. He is serving two life terms plus 85 years.

The killings occurred at the Heidt family home about 3 a.m. Aug. 25, 2008, on Springfield-Egypt Road in Effingham County.

Philip and Carey Heidt were found shot to death in their beds. Linda Heidt, who was 58 at the time, was shot as she exited the master bathroom. She was found bleeding in the kitchen by first responders after she made a desperate call to 911. Linda Heidt testified she was unable to identify her attacker.

Prosecutors presented evidence of Craig Heidt’s affair with his brother Carey Heidt’s wife, Robin Cave, and an inheritance from his parents as motive for the murders. Cave recently reclaimed her maiden name.

Heidt’s attorney, W. Dow Bonds, appealed on several grounds, including insufficient evidence and trial-court error in six instances.

Justices found sufficient evidence to sustain the convictions and no errors by the trial court.

“We conclude that the evidence in this case was sufficient to authorize a rational trier of fact to find Heidt guilty beyond a reasonable doubt of the crimes for which he was convicted,” wrote Justice Keith Blackwell.

Both Philip and Carey Heidt were aware of the Craig Heidt/Robin Cave affair. The justices noted that Philip Heidt had changed his will only days before his death, reducing Craig Heidt’s share, but no evidence indicated he knew of the change.

The court also noted Craig Heidt had been told by Robin Cave that Carey Heidt had gone to spend the night at his parents’ house after an argument with Cave about the affair. It was the first time in 13 years Carey Heidt spent the night at his mother and father’s home without Cave.

Heidt’s appeal also claimed conflicting expert testimony regarding the cause of bruises found on Craig Heidt’s upper arms within days of the murders was insufficient for a conviction.

The high court stated: “It is the role of the jury to resolve conflicts in the evidence and to determine credibility of witnesses.”

The prosecution’s witnesses testified the bruises were consistent with firing a shotgun and the age of the bruises matched the date of the murders.

The appeal also claimed the court erred in denying a motion for a change of venue for the trial. The justices found it was not error to deny a motion for a change of venue, writing: “Here, Heidt alleges that there was a lot of gossip, rumor and innuendo about his affair with Robin, but he does not claim that the stories about the affair were untrue or even disputed at trial, and he fails to show that the pretrial publicity was inflammatory or created a hostile atmosphere.”

The court also noted that only six of 59 potential jurors were excused because of pretrial publicity.

Other alleged trial-court errors cited by the defense included the disqualification of Manubir Arora as a defense attorney for Craig Heidt due to a conflict of interest. Arora was also representing Cave, who was expected to testify at the trial and had been arrested for intimidating a prosecution witness.

The justices found Arora’s removal from the case was not an error.

The appeal also claimed prosecutors withheld evidence of a shotgun that belonged to Carey Heidt until after the trial. Cave took the shotgun for repair during Craig Heidt’s murder trial.

The justices found Heidt had “failed to come forward with any evidence that the State failed to disclose the existence of the shotgun.”

Prosecutor Michael Muldrew said he was not surprised the convictions were affirmed.

“Although the affirmances were fully expected, it’s gratifying to see that the endless hours of work by the GBI, Sheriff Jimmy McDuffie’s office and the personnel of the district attorney’s office resulted in the conviction of Craig Heidt for the commission of such heinous crimes,” Muldrew said.

Muldrew was also hopeful the court’s decision would bring some peace.

“The district attorney’s office is pleased that the Supreme Court of Georgia affirmed the convictions. While there has never been any doubt of Craig Heidt’s guilt, the affirmance of the convictions will hopefully bring closure to Philip, Carey and Linda Heidt’s family, friends and the Effingham County community at large.”

Bonds said his client isn’t giving up.

“On behalf of my client, Craig Heidt, we are extremely disappointed in today’s decision by the Georgia Supreme Court, affirming his conviction. Craig continues to maintain his complete innocence and will continue the fight to one day regain his freedom.”
