Man charged in Bibb deputy’s killing pleads not guilty to charges at new indictment

Antron Fair, one of the men accused of fatally shooting Bibb County deputy Joseph Whitehead while he helped serve a no-knock warrant on March 23, 2006, pleaded not guilty Wednesday to charges presented in a new indictment stemming from the shooting.

Fair, 24, and Damon Jolly, 23, are charged with murder in Whitehead’s death.

Both men could face the death penalty if convicted.

Fair and Jolly were reindicted Sept. 23, 2008, in a 34-count indictment that also includes drug and firearm offenses.

Additional hearings are scheduled for April, May and June, when Fair’s attorneys and the prosecution will argue pretrial motions.

A trial date has not been set.
