Construction worker convicted of killing woman who refused to accept $8 for sex


Felix Shirley offered Misha Moore $8 in exchange for sex. 

When Moore said it wasn’t enough, Shirley beat and killed her. 

On Friday, a jury convicted Shirley of murder in the Jan. 10, 2017 killing, The Fulton County District Attorney’s Office said.  

Shirley had just ended his shift working on the Mercedes-Benz Stadium when 27-year-old Moore approached him and offered him sex in exchange for money, Fulton district attorney spokeswoman Nakell Williams said in a news release.

The two walked toward Underground Atlanta, where Shirley handed Moore $8. 

When she told him it was “not enough,” Shirley grabbed Moore and threw her against a wall. She fell to the ground and Shirley kicked and stomped her. Authorities say Felix then pulled out a .22 caliber revolver and shot Moore in her face and neck. 

The murder was captured on Underground Atlanta’s surveillance video. Moore’s body was eventually found lying at the bottom of a stairwell by two Underground Atlanta Mall security officers. 

Shirley was sentenced to life in prison, plus five years.
