Two more men have been charged in the Aug. 28 shooting death of Charlie David Davis.

Killeon Shanard Cooper, 20, and Thaddaeus Elon Williams Jr., 33, both of Augusta, were charged Saturday with felony counts of murder and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, according to Richmond County jail records. Williams also has been charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Curtis Michael Bonman, 30, was charged Friday with felony counts of murder, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, according to jail records. He was being held without bond.

About 11 p.m. on Aug. 28, Richmond County sheriff’s deputies were called to the 2100 block of Third Avenue, where they found Davis, 31, of Augusta, with a gunshot wound, according to an incident report.

Davis was taken to Georgia Regents Medical Center, where he died less than an hour later.

Bonman also is being held for the Oconee County (Ga.) Sheriff’s Office as a suspect in the Nov. 14 kidnapping of Detrick Favors, 40, of Farmington, Ga., who was taken at gunpoint from his house.

On Thursday, police arrested Derrick Demetric Ingram, 36, of Haddock, a community in Jones County, Ga., and Karin Tanja King, 38, of Augusta, in connection with the kidnapping. They have been charged with burglary, false imprisonment, kidnapping and aggravated assault. Bonman is charged with similar offenses.

A fourth suspect, Justin Dar­quel Jackson, 24, of Augusta, was arrested the day of the kidnapping when he went to a Watkinsville, Ga., shopping center to collect a ransom, Berry said. Officers were watching and captured him.

Ingram and Jackson remain in the Oconee County jail without bond, and King remains in jail with bond set at $50,000.

The Oconee County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the kidnapping.
