Carjacking, murder suspect says he has no money, job

Gregory Moore faces federal judge in Fort Lauderdale

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Gregory B. Moore completed his first appearance in federal court Friday morning and offered no explanation as to why a day earlier he was unable to stay awake during the proceeding.

Moore is accused of shooting his ex-girlfriend, Danielle Roland, and killing another man, Johnson St. Louis, as they sat in a car in the parking lot of a Hallandale Beach insurance office.

Authorities said Moore carjacked three people during Tuesday morning's mission to track down Roland and get away after the shooting.

Roland survived the attack and remains hospitalized.

Moore told the judge he has no money and no job. He said he used to work for a pest control company tenting housing but has been unemployed for five months. He also revealed that he has eight children and another one on the way.

The carjacking and murder suspect was appointed a public defender and will be back in court next week for a pretrial detention hearing. Federal prosecutors are seeking to hold him in custody without bond.

After the hearing, Moore's mother and sister were approached by two detectives. It's unclear for which agency they worked, but the undercover officers walked with the women to the parking garage. Moore's relatives declined to speak to reporters before they left with the detectives in separate vehicles.
