Macon – Bibb County grand jurors indicted two men Tuesday in the Nov. 17, 2017, fatal shooting of 24-year-old Jonathan Risby on Fairview Avenue in east Macon.
Anterrio Tremaine Stinson, 26, and Kelvin Dewayne Carswell, 38, each are charged with 12 counts of violation of the state’s Street Gang Terrorism and Prevention Act, two counts of felony murder, one count of malice murder and one count of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.
Stinson and Carswell, both of Macon, also are charged with two counts of aggravated assault stemming from the shooting of a woman, and a gun being brandished during the same incident.
Stinson additionally is charged with another four counts of violating the gang act, one count of possession of a firearm by a first offender probationer and one count of influencing a witness.
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 they are proven guilty in a court of law.
Grand jurors also issued true bills of indictment in three other Macon killings:
- Tequilla Renee Brown, 26, and Antwan Sherrod Lamar, 25, both of Macon, are charged with murder and other charges in the Sept. 9, 2017, fatal shooting of 26-year-old Talesha Taylor.
- Arie J. Calloway, 16, and Jeremy Jerome Kendrick Jr., 17, both of Macon, are charged with murder and other charges in the August 14, 2018, fatal shooting of Alpeshkumar Prajapati. Calloway, Kendrick and 29-year-old Vernon Bernard Ashley Jr., also are charged with murder and other charges in the Aug. 21, 2018, fatal shooting of Waqar Ali.
