A Houston County grand jury has handed up indictments charging murder in two unrelated Warner Robins killings last month.

Kadarius Latdravius Kendrick, 20, Anighyah Zhalon Neal, 21, and Voneric Chante Richardson, 21, were each indicted on charges of felony murder, armed robbery and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

The body of 30-year-old Lance Adrian Williams was discovered just before 2 p.m. July 8 inside his home at 604 Richmond Hill Parkway after police were called there about a suspicious person. He had been shot once in the chest.

A neighbor told The Telegraph that a man was running through the yard and leaping over fences. The man jumped into a late-’90s-model maroon Mercury Sable with two other men.

His friends and family told The Telegraph that Williams was known to carry and flash large amounts of cash. His family also said that the men charged in Williams’ death were known to him, having all grown up in Perry. Kendrick and Richardson still live in Perry. Neal had moved away but recently returned. The indictment listed an out-of-state address for him.

According to the indictment, Williams was robbed of an undisclosed amount of cash. His father, Danny Williams, said police recovered the cash. Williams was shot with a .45 caliber pistol.

Neal was named as the accused shooter in an arrest warrant for Richardson.

“The accused (Richardson) admitted he drove the co-defendants to the victim’s residence, where co-defendant Neal shot and killed the victim,” the warrant said. “The accused (Richardson) also admitted he picked up the co-defendant, Neal, after the shooting and drove co-defendant Neal to Perry and dropped him off.”

Also indicted Tuesday was Artis Christian Jones, 38, of Macon, on charges of malice murder, felony murder, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during commission of felony.

D’Andre Nepoleon Willis, 52, was shot three times July 20 with a .25 caliber pistol outside the Executive Inn at 2079 Watson Blvd. He was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Warner Robins police detectives believe a previous argument led to the shooting.
