Anthony Jermaine Fuller was 16 when he and two others broke into Edward Davidson's house off Jefferson River Road last year. But Fuller has told authorities he didn't shoot and kill the 76-year-old man.
On Thursday, during a pre-trial hearing, authorities played Fuller's recorded admission to police, which says he broke into the house but didn't kill Davidson, according to a story in the Athens Banner Herald. Fuller faces murder and other charges along with Justin Oneal Baughns, 23, and Dwayne Tavares Myers, 31.
Police believe Myers and Fuller went into Davidson's house and that Baughns drove the car, the story says. Which means that Myers, a convicted felon at the time of the burglary, may have shot Davidson.
Officials had planned to play a series of recordings of Fuller during the hearing, but Fuller, who was nervous during the hearing, suddenly flipped over a table, the story says, and was escorted out of the room.
According to the ABH story, authorities believe the three may have been involved in burglaries they believe started Nov. 23. Targeted homes may be ones on Rustwood, Sleepy Creek and Fair Oaks drives; Vaughn and Old Monroe roads; South Milledge Avenue; Cardinal Creek Place; and Pepperidge Lane.
