2 sentenced in fatal shooting of Augusta man, 81

Two men pleaded guilty Thursday to charges related to the homicide of an 81-year-old man who was shot while watching television in May 2011.

Tracy Lindsey received 25 years in prison in exchange for a plea to armed robbery and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime. Artavious Fezzel accepted a sentence of life in prison with the possibility of parole as part of his plea to murder.

The two pleas leave only Joseph L. Jordan, who is suspected of pulling the trigger, with an outstanding case. The defendants who pleaded guilty Tuesday agreed to testify at his trial, which could start next month.

A fourth defendant, Rufus Khalid-Durand Van, pleaded guilty March 29 for his role in the robbery and received 20 years in prison.

The defendants said in court Thursday that Jordan fired one shot through the kitchen window of Johnny Luckey’s home on Hoods Lane while Luckey sat on the couch and watched TV. The teenagers believed Luckey kept cash around his house. Before they left, Luckey was shot once more.
