Two men are charged with murder in the strangling death of a 22-year-old at a west Macon hotel room earlier this month.

Leetravis Lashon Briscoe of Gordon, and Earl Dewayne Adams, of Macon, are accused of choking Jarrium Malik Fuller to death on Aug. 15 during an argument in room No. 228 at America’s Best Value Inn on Romeiser Drive, according to a Bibb County Sheriff’s Office news release.

Fuller’s body was discovered in a hotel that afternoon. An autopsy found that Fuller died from asphyxiation caused by strangulation.

Briscoe, 31, was arrested Tuesday morning after U.S. Marshals Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force found him in a hotel on Chambers Road, across Eisenhower Parkway from the hotel where Fuller was killed. He was booked in the jail late Tuesday.

Adams, 38, turned himself in at the sheriff’s office early Wednesday.

Both men have criminal histories and are being held without bond.

Briscoe, who dropped out of high school in 11th grade, was serving a two-year sentence after pleading guilty to possession of cocaine in May 2018, according to Bibb County Superior Court records.

Adams, who dropped out of high school in 10th grade, had been in and out of prison since 2013 on charges ranging from forgery to shoplifting and theft by receiving, according to the Georgia Department of Corrections.

Fuller is the county’s 15th homicide victim here in 2019.
