James Thurmond Daughtie was charged with murder and aggravated assault Friday after ballistics tests confirmed he fired the shot that killed Dontrell Kyler at Cherry Tree Crossing on Thursday morning, according to the Richmond County Sheriff's Office.

Kyler, 25, who was shot several times, was a passenger in a car with another man, 32-year-old Ozzie Brian Jones, who was wounded.

Kyler's family and friends said Friday they will hold a candlelight vigil at 8 p.m. Tuesday at Big Oak Park on Wheeler Road.

I like the name "Cherry Tree

I like the name "Cherry Tree Crossing", it has such a bucolic sound to it. It brings to mind orchards, meadows, butterflies, AK47's, etc........

Anyone that maybe commenting

Anyone that maybe commenting about this tragic loss should be praying for Dontrell's family to give them the strength to deal with their loss. Help the family by attending the candlelight Tuesday at 8pm at Big Oak Park and please make any donations towards Dontrell's memorial. This is the way the community can help. Yours truly Jacqueline Roberts
