Moultrie murder suspect surrenders

MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) - The man who was wanted for the murder of Danny Hill on January 10 Surrendered today.

Lt. Steven Colgan of the Moultrie Police Department said that Bonny Lee Lewis turned himself in to authorities.

Hill was shot to death in his Moultrie home. Agents ruled he acted in self defense last year during a botched drug deal. Now they're trying to figure out if the Hill's past played a role in his murder.

GBI agents said Danny Hill shot Kirby Yon to death during a drug deal in February 2013.But the charges against him were dropped, after the investigation showed the shooting was in self defense.

"He wasn't charged with murder, because it looked like Yon had actually taken a knife and stabbed him a few times before he actually returned fire," said GBI Special Agent in Charge Steve Turner.
