Two men wanted for the armed robbery and shooting of a man at Richmond Villa apartments last month have turned themselves in, police said Sunday.

Marquese Demario Parrish, of Kennedy Drive, and Darrell Fitzgerald Hill Jr., of Richwood Road, turned themselves into the Charles B. Webster Detention Center about 2:44 p.m. with their attorneys by their sides, according to a statement from the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office.

Neither man provided statements to police.

Parrish and Hill, both 22, have been charged with armed robbery, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, according to the statement. Parrish has also been charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

A third suspect, Kevin Mau­rice Hanna, 23, of Heph­zibah, was arrested last month and remains in the Richmond County jail.

Parrish has been arrested on drug charges on numerous occasions dating back to 2007. In April 2009, he was charged with carrying a concealed weapon without a permit and for possession of a pistol by a person under 18. In June 2010, he was charged with possession of a weapon by a convicted felon.

Hill has faced charges of theft by receiving stolen property twice in the past year and was charged with carrying a concealed weapon without a license on two separate occasions in a three-year span.

Both men have numerous traffic violations dating back to April 2006, including charges of fleeing and attempting to elude police officers, reckless driving, leaving the scene of an accident and driving without a license.

Enough time to lawyer up & get their story straight

With that said....
Here is a classic example of Gun Control laws.

While laws slow and impede citizen from ownership, it is clear they do not stop criminals from gaining access to firearms.

There are those that say we should totally Ban Firearms, and allow only the Government to have them. Because the above example also shows
that only Citizens would be without protection. Because criminals don't obey laws and would still find the tools of their trade.

As it has been said before and appropriate in this case:

"____ Living the Dream"

Report Travis Highfield - Kudos

Excellent article, Excellent background research.

Wished we saw more articles like this where good digging is done.

We, as readers, now have a wider picture and understand this was NOT a random incident given the previous criminal histories involved.

When Is Enough, Enough ??

I agree with 'nocnoc' -- lawyer up and let's get our story straight before they start the "interview" process of the investigation. But seriously, haven't we given Parrish more than enough "chances" to clean up his act ?? I think it is time to put him into a deep, dark SuperMax hole for the rest of his life. His mommy should be SO proud of her little angel. Seven years is long enough. He apparently cannot, or is not willing to become a contributing member of society.

@ dichotomy

I first posted along the same lines as you, but then decided to edit myself, for fear of getting gigged. I personally do not think we should have SuperMax prisons. If someone is bad enough to be in one, we should just stick a needle in them, and be done with it. Like Parrish here...

Great!

it's always good news when one who is a sinner come to repentance whoo hoo! Now the only thing for them left it seems to be preached the Kingdom of God and forgiveness of His so that they would reconcile with God and their old life would be washed away and not end up in hell for the darkness they served. Good start for them. God bless all who turn away from wickedness<3 !

Who says they are repentant?

Who says they are repentant?

More like, their families were being leaned on, and forced them to turn themselves in.

Their lawyers convinced them that the lenient judges and lazy prosecutors in Augusta would allow them to plea down to something like disturbing the piece and credited with time served as a sentence.
