SAVANNAH, GA -

Trina Mayes has turned herself in to police and currently sits in Chatham County Jail.

Mayes, the former SCMPD detective indicted Wednesday, was booked under her maiden name, Trina Katrice Williams just after 9 this morning.

Trina Mayes is facing 7 charges of making false statements.

As a former police officer, Mayes has been put in an isolated cell for her protection.

===================================================================

He was a man once called one of Savannah's most wanted.

Accused in a brutal stabbing of two people, on the run from police.

So why does Anthony Jackson's name show up in the indictment of former Detective Trina Mayes?

News 3 talked to the man who says he has that answer.

"He stayed at the house. He stayed at Trina's house. He didn't stay at my house."
"And Trina was a police officer at the time?
"Yeah she was SPD."

Those are the words of Rocky Sellers.

He is the convicted felon we first introduced you to last November and a key witness in the case against Trina Mayes.

Mayes was fired from Savannah-Chatham Police earlier this month and is now under indictment on 7 charges.

He dated Mayes, then Trina McGee, for months. And even says he lived with her.
 
Sellers claims, for at least a week in 2006, Anthony Jackson, the man named in one count of the Trina Mayes indictment and a wanted man - was another one of her houseguests.

"She knew he was hiding out? It was not like he was staying there and had no idea?"

"She had plenty knew what was going on," explained Rocky Sellers. "She knew she was very conscious to the fact what was going on."

What was going on?

Anthony Jackson was wanted for the brutal stabbing of his ex girlfriend and her boyfriend back in 2006.

It's a case that drew a lot of attention when it first happened because of the bloody scene left behind, and the fact he was on the run for months after it happened.

Sellers says that Mayes helped him make that run from justice.

"She told him that the radio scanner would keep her in the know," said Sellers. "To let them know if they were coming in the area. Because he would have to leave if she picked him up on the scanner."

Jackson stayed on the loose for almost six months before finally being brought to justice. He's now serving 20 years in Macon State Prison.

One of the indictment's seven counts of making false statements Mayes now faces directly states that she claimed she did not know Anthony Jackson.

The other six are all related to allegedly incorrect statements she made to independent investigators, the Chief of Police and City Manager. Many of those connected to Rocky Sellers.

Mayes has not turned herself in to police yet. Once she does a court date will be set on those charges.

This is all in addition to Trina Mayes' civil case.

She is still threatening to sue the city connected to her claim she had an affair with then Chief Willie Lovett.

Mayes' lawyer says that lawsuit will be filed in the next month if a settlement is not reached.

We will keep you updated.
