Macon – Bibb County grand jurors voted to indict five people on murder charges Tuesday in the October fatal shooting of 16-year-old Kendrick Darnell Davis.

Cortavius Hassan Ates, 20, Eric Bowden, 17, Demarkis Jamichael Hammonds, 19, Jamon Deshon Jackson, 18, and Troy Jackson, 16, each are charged with one count of felony murder, according to an indictment filed in Bibb County Superior Court.

Davis was found fatally shot near the intersection of Manson and Warpath roads in east Macon on Oct. 30, 2018.

An indictment is a charging document issued by grand jurors if the group determines probable cause exists for the case to move forward toward trial.

Each defendant is presumed to be innocent unless and until he/she is proven guilty in a court of law.
