A Bibb County grand jury has indicted a 17-year-old Lizella teenager in the September 2009 shooting death of a man at a Bibb County convenience store.
Javone Malik Taylor, of a Columbus Road address, is charged with two counts of felony murder, armed robbery, aggravated assault and two counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, according to the indictment.
Taylor is accused of killing 26-year-old Jaymal Patel of Sandersville during a robbery at the RaceWay, 5127 Mercer University Drive, on Sept. 4, 2009. Patel was at the gas station just after midnight so he could get a ride home with his brother, who worked at the station.
As the station closed, a man with a gun approached Patel and demanded money. Patel handed over his empty wallet. The robber demanded money again and shot Patel to death.
