Stolen guns were used by two men in a deadly home invasion in Glynn County on Feb. 5, according to an indictment handed down by a Glynn County grand jury this week.
Indictments in a number of cases were released Wednesday, including those for the two men and for a suspect in another murder investigation.
Nicholaus Robert Cooke-Dew, 30, and Brandon C. McBride, 31, both face 20 different counts in regard to the Feb. 5 home invasion in the 100 block of Southern Pines Way that resulted in the shooting death of Antonio Jenkins and the shooting of Shtera Collins.
According to the indictment, the suspects had in their possession a .223-caliber Ruger Mini 14 rifle and a .357-caliber Ruger revolver, both stolen from the same person.
The suspects are charged with one count of malice murder, two counts of felony murder, seven counts of possession of a firearm during commission of a felony, three counts of aggravated assault, two counts of home invasion, two counts of theft by receiving and two counts of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon — Cooke-Dew has a 2014 felony assault conviction from Kodiak County, Alaska and McBride has a 2008 felony robbery conviction from Madison County, Ill., the indictment indicated.
Also indicted this week in a separate murder case was Douglas Morris Morgan Jr., 55, who allegedly shot and killed his wife, Michelle, the evening of Feb. 10. Glynn County police arrived at the residence shortly after 8:34 p.m., where they found Michelle Morgan dead from a shotgun wound to the chest. Douglas Morgan initially told police he was in the bathroom when he heard a gunshot, and said it appeared the shotgun fell and discharged, according to a police report. Following questioning, however, investigators arrested him on suspicion of the homicide. At the time, Morgan was on probation for assault and violation of the Family Violence Act.
He faces one count of malice murder, two counts of felony murder, three counts of possession of a firearm during commission of a felony, three counts of tampering with evidence, two counts of aggravated assault and violating the Family Violence Act and one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Five people — including juveniles to be tried as adults — were indicted regarding the Jan. 17 armed robbery of a 17-year-old male who believed he was to meet up with a girl he talked with through Facebook. According to a news release from the Glynn County Police Deapartment, the girl picked him up in a Dodge Durango with another girl and three 18-year-old males.
The alleged victim was then choked from behind and robbed at gunpoint. The gold 2006 Durango was also considered stolen at the time of the crime. Among the items allegedly taken from the victim were a mobile phone, a necklace and a belt.
Kiyanna Conaway, 16; Tyrone Joe Daniels, 18; Aaron Jermaine Holland, 18; Torrence Tymere Starke, 18 and Vernae L. Washington, 14, are all charged with conspiracy to commit armed robbery. The girls are also accused of theft by receiving.
The indictment made through Glynn County Superior Court indicates Conaway and Washington are being charged as adults.
The 18-year-old males are additionally accused of three counts of possession of a firearm during commission of a felony, two counts of aggravated assault and one count of armed robbery. Starke picked up another charge of possession of a firearm by a first-offender probationer.
The weapon in question was a J.C. Higgins Model 66 12-gauge shotgun, the indictment stated.
