Adel man arrested for murder

May 19, 2004

Valdosta - A South Georgia man is arrested for murder.

Twenty-two year old Jason Byron of Adel is charged with murdering 19-year-old Devante Williams of Valdosta. Police say he shot Williams in the back in the parking lot of the Bemiss Road Harvey's Supermarket last Saturday.

The two had been in an argument earlier at Rick's Night Club. "We located witnesses and other information from the scene that night that lead us directly to Mr. Byron," said Lt. Brian Childress.

After police arrested Byron at his Adel home last night, he confessed to shooting Williams.
