Prosecution has a long list of witnesses in murder case

By Walter Geiger The prosecution has a long list of witnesses to call in the murder trial of Jamarris Latuan Williams. Williams allegedly stabbed local cab company owner John Dixson in the throat and left him to die in a southeast Lamar County ravine on March 16, 2012. Williams is charged with malice murder, three counts felony murder, armed robbery, two counts aggravated assault and hijacking a motor vehicle. His trial will be held in Monroe County. After a delay due to upheaval in the public defender’s office, the trial could come off in the coming months once pretrial forensic testing is complete and motions are dealt with. Judging by the prosecution’s list of witnesses, the trial could be a long one. A host of GBI personnel are on the list, including Tom Davis, special agent in charge of the Milledgevile office. Others include veteran crime scene specialist Todd Crosby, Dr. Lora Darrisaw of the state crime lab and agents David Peebles, Brian Hargrove, Rhiannon Morgan and Joe Wooten. Former agent Cayce Ingalls, who is now an investigator for the Towaliga circuit district attorney’s office, is also on the witness list. Other law enforcement officers listed are Todd Pippin of the Lamar sheriff’s office and Bryan McWhorter and Al Moltrum of the Barnesville Police Department. There are 17 citizens on the state’s list as well. They are Jeremy Armstrong, Sohel Batliwala, Ashley Coffey, Kelis Collier, Autaurs Drewery, Reginald Fambro, Eric Hamm, Matthew Hill, Deana Jackson, Alicedonia Jones, Dedra Faye McDaniel, George Philip O’Neal, Cindy Pruitt, Stephen Ruffin, Laura Thompson, Jenez Williams and Anthony Wilson. Thus far, Williams himself is the only defense witness listed in the court file.
