A teenager charged with murder in the Saturday shooting death of another teen on an Anthony Road baseball field stood before a judge Tuesday.
Jedarrius Treonta Meadows Jr., 17, was charged with murder Monday in the death of 16-year-old Damian Bernard Little Petey Clayton. He was arrested Monday morning at his school, Central High.
Dressed in an orange jail jumpsuit, Meadows stood silent while Magistrate Barbara Harris explained his rights and said she couldnt set bond in his case.
His lawyer, Laura Hogue, requested a commitment hearing -- a time when deputies must testify about why a person was arrested -- on Meadows behalf. The hearing is scheduled for March 11.
Asked for a comment on Meadows behalf, Hogue said, were looking forward to getting to the bottom of what happened in this very serious case.
Meadows, who lives in Macon, will be held at the county jail in the meantime.
Roland Watson, 15, also is charged with murder in Claytons death. His first appearance hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.
Watson is a student at Southwest High, the same school Clayton attended until November, according to the Bibb County school system.
Records show Clayton wasnt enrolled after November, said Stephanie Hartley, a school district spokeswoman.
Citing student privacy regulations, Hartley said she couldnt disclose information on why Clayton was no longer a student.
Friends reported that Clayton was shot about 7:45 p.m. Saturday.
He had wounds to his head, torso and arm when deputies found him at the Macon Little League baseball field on Anthony Road. Clayton had a faint pulse when emergency workers arrived, but he died later at a hospital.
