Arrests made in Monroe murder

Three persons have been arrested and a fourth is still at large in connection with a murder in Monroe County last week. From Allison Selman-Willis, M.C.S.O.: Three arrests have been made in the double homicide that occurred in Monroe County on May 7, 2013. Sameeria Rikiea Carter, 16 years old, of Macon, Marquez Deshawn Martin, 19 years old, of Macon and Jordan Keaugh Maxwell, 18 years old, of Macon were arrested and charged with murder in the deaths of Russell Jacobs, 36 years old, and James Pittman Wood, 40 years old. A fourth suspect, Dave’von Sapp, 17 years old, of Macon has also been charged with murder but has yet to be apprehended. Monroe County Sheriff’s Office investigators discovered that the vehicle the victims were riding in, a red Ford Ranger truck, apparently broke down near the Riverwalk Apartments late in the evening on May 6. Investigators believe the victims parked the truck on the apartment grounds near Bass Road on Hwy. 87 then somehow traveled to the nearby Marathon gas station. Video tape from the Marathon gas station shows the two victims conversing with Carter at the station at 2:33 a.m. and leaving with Carter in a silver Pontiac Torrent at 2:48 a.m. Martin, who owned the Torrent, was driving and the other suspects were passengers along with the two victims. When the suspects arrived at the victims’ home on Woods Drive in Monroe County, Maxwell asked the victims if he could get something to drink. The victims allowed at least one of the suspects into the home. The victims were shot in the head and the suspects fled the home with several electronics including a television set, a computer and cameras. Carter was arrested at her home on Flamingo Drive in Macon on early Saturday morning, May 11,2 013 and is being housed at the RYDC in Macon. Carter was denied bond and her case has been transferred from Juvenile Court to Superior Court. Maxwell was arrested Friday evening, May 10, at his girlfriend’s residence on Rice Mill Road in Macon. Martin was arrested at his place of employment on Saturday, May 11. All of the suspects are associated with the gang MOE (Money Over Everything). Bond was denied by the Magistrate judge for both men. They will have to petition Superior Court for a bond hearing. A date for the hearings has not been set. The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office was assisted in the investigation by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office, the Jones County Sheriff’s Office, the Middle Georgia Fugitive Task Force, the Forsyth Police Department and the Macon Police Department. The investigation into this case continues. Anyone with any information about suspect Dave’von Sapp is urged to contact investigators with the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office at 478-994-7043.
