Murder indictment relieves victim's family

November 29, 2007

Albany -- The father of a murdered Lee County teenager is relieved by indictments against two suspects.

Charles Cox is the father of 19-year old Justin Cox, whose body was found in the Flint River last month.

One of the two men charged with killing Justin had petitioned the court to have the charges against him thrown out. Robert Lee Williams says he didn't kill Justin Cox, but Justin's father says he should be punished for helping dispose of Justin's body. Charles Cox said "if he didn't do nothing, he should have stopped it, or slowed it down. Or called somebody and said we killed him and we didn't mean to, or something. No one has showed no remorse or nothing."

Police say Kaseem Toomer confessed to hitting Justin Cox in the head and Williams helped him dump Cox body in the Flint River.

They will likely stand trial early next year.
