Macon – Bibb County grand jurors indicted defendants in multiple Macon murder cases Tuesday.
Jeffery Hunter Jr., 26, Kaylen Devon Johnson, 24 and Jedarrius Treonta Meadows Jr., 22, all of Macon, each are charged with malice murder, felony murder, and two counts of aggravated assault in the Dec.16, 2018, early morning shooting death of 33-year-old Danny Causey and wounding of another man behind Raffield Tire Master, 486 Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.
Johnson and Meadows are charged with an additional three counts of aggravated assault on allegations they also fired shots at three other people. Hunter is charged with four counts of violating Georgia’s Street Gang Terrorism and Prevention Act. Johnson and Meadows are charged with six counts of violating the gang act.
A separate indictment charges Johnson and 24-year-old Devantae Lajerian Lundy with one count of malice murder, four counts of felony murder, one count of armed robbery, two counts of aggravated assault and eight counts of violating the gang act. The charges stem from the April 14, 2018 armed robbery at Jaffary’s Food Court on Anthony Road (also known as the Wash Pot and Grocery), the fatal shooting of 44-year-old Marlon Williams outside the store and the fatal shooting of 75-year-old Ann Leonard at her nearby home on Vining Circle.
An indictment is a charging document issued by grand jurors if the group determines probable cause exists for the case to move forward toward trial.
Each defendant is presumed to be innocent unless and until he or she is proven guilty in a court of law.
