Two convicted killers seek new trials

Two killers convicted in Lamar County will appear in court before Judge Tommy Wilson March 2 seeking new trials. Levievius T. Eleby’s effort to get a new trial has been brewing for some time and delayed at least twice due to COVID. Eleby was part of a robbing crew that hit the home of Danavan Bussey on Westchester Drive at 4 a.m. Dec. 5, 2010. Court testimony indicated Eleby and Bussey were competitors in the local 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 Smith 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. Also seeking a new trial is Ronald Eugene Smith who lay in wait for Charles Graves Adams and shot him in the face with a high-powered rifle on Jan. 30, 2009. Adams died on the front porch of his Grove Street home and was buried in a pauper’s grave. Williams, who got a life sentence, is now housed at Wheeler Correctional Facility. He testified that he killed Adams after a night of using meth and watching porn with his wife.
