Eleby was part of a robbing crew that hit the home of Danavan Bussey on Westchester Drive at 4 a.m. Court testimony indicated Eleby and Bussey were competitors in the marijuana sales market. Eleby shot Bussey with a .22 pistol. Shameik Spinks then shot him with a shotgun. Both are serving life sentences for murder and multiple additional counts. Eleby is locked away at Telfair State Prison. Spinks is housed at Hays State Prison. A third member of the crew, Bryce Arsenio Smith, cut a deal and testified against Eleby and Spinks. His record was apparently expunged because he is not listed as a past or current offender by the Department of Corrections.
