MOULTRIE (WALB) - A second suspect wanted in the murder of a Colquitt County man is now in jail.

Phirronnious Edwards was arrested Thursday in Mitchell County following a traffic stop. He surrendered to GBI agents and Pelham Police officers without incident.

He's charged with the September 22nd shooting death of 29-year-old Billy Hewitt. He was gunned down outside 9th Avenue home.

Last week police charged 24-year-old Michael Russell with murder.

Investigators believe robbery was the motive.
