 On Tuesday, Tyler McGriff, a co-defendant in the murder case of Shaun Williams, had his court case continued in the Atlantic Judicial Circuit of Georgia. 

McGriff is charged with murder, felony murder, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

It is suspected that McGriff and co-defendant Herbert Roberts killed Shaun Williams in a drug deal gone wrong on July 14, 2016.

Jermaine Mealy, who is charged with malice murder, felony murder, aggravated assault, and possession of a firearm or knife during the commission of or attempt to commit certain felonies, had his case continued as well.

Mealy is suspected of murdering Nathaniel Brown in early June after finding Brown inside his home with his wife after driving from Fort Polk, Louisiana, where he was stationed.

Mealy was released on a $50,000 bond.

Gabriel Jones, who is facing 46 charges including multiple counts of malice murder and felony murders, had his case continued. 

Jones was out on bond for another suspected murder in McIntosh County before the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office arrested him. 

James E. McCray Jr., the 16-year-old who allegedly shot and killed his father on Aug. 12, received a consent bond on Sept. 5, before his preliminary bond hearing that morning.
