Investigators were called around 2 a.m. Thursday to Lot 105 at Windsor Court mobile home park, where they found 38-year-old Javares Alston dead with gunshot wounds, Richmond County sheriff’s Lt. Blaise Dresser said.

Danielle Willingham, 38, had been shot in the leg.

Alston’s body has been sent to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation Crime Lab in Augusta for an autopsy. Willingham was taken to a hospital with his wounds.

Investigators said Dequan Holmes, 17, was soon identified as a suspect and found at his home on Drew Lane in Hephzibah.

He has been booked into the Richmond County jail on charges of murder, aggravated assault and possession of a handgun during the commission of a crime.

Both victims, who lived at the residence on Windsor Spring Road, are originally from the Columbia area and had recently moved to Augusta.

Dresser said investigators have a suspicion on a motive but did not say what it is.

This was Richmond County’s 16th homicide of the year.

Death Penalty

Unless this is a case of self defense, if he is convicted of murder, he needs to be put down. 17 years old and has committed he ultimate crime. Put him down so that he never has another chance to hurt, maim, or kill anyone else. At 17, he's already shown that he does not belong in society.

ole dequan is going to use the "stand your ground defense" while doing that his mom will be sitting in the front row all decked out in the latest from CITI TRENDS,crying while being comforted by the local pastor/civil or community rights leader, both when given a chance will say what a "good boy" dequan is and he didn't mean it he just got "caught up" with the wrong crowd.

Feral!

Feral -- Very witty, and what a great adjective. Kind of like a wild pig that maims anything within the area of its scent.
