Fourth charged in Macon triple murder | News
Bibb County deputies arrested a fourth person in connection with three May shooting deaths.
Lewis Monroe Cheney II, 30, was arrested Monday at United Suites, 2737 Sheraton Drive, without incident, according to a Bibb County Sheriff's Office news release.
Cheney, who is being held at the Bibb County jail without bond, is charged with three counts of murder and one count of aggravated assault.
He was arrested in connection with the May 29 shooting death of Terrance "Heavy D" Vanderrick Dent Jr., 25. His body was found at about 3:38 a.m. at 688 Granada Terrace. Investigators said his body was dropped off there, but he was shot in the 3000 block of Fairburn Avenue.
Cheney is also charged in the May 30 shooting deaths of Arika Jarrell, 23, and Ralph Heard, 32. Their bodies were found in a vehicle behind a residence at 3365 Fairburn Ave.
The Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force assisted in the investigation and Bibb deputies received a Crime Stoppers tip leading to Cheney's arrest, the news release states.
At first, investigators thought they were investigating two separate homicide investigations, the news release states. During their investigation, they learned the deaths of Jarrell, Heard, and Dent were possibly linked.
Investigators say the three people were fatally wounded during a "robbery gone wrong" incident, the news release states.
The other three suspects arrested in the deaths are Rayshawn "Ping" Reanaldo Lucas, 32, Quintavious "Quinn" Isaih" Everett, 22, Vincent "White Boy" Lewis, 36.
