SPARKS, GA (WALB) - A second suspect was behind bars Wednesday in connection with a March 1st murder in Sparks.
Sparks resident Daylan Keeley was arrested in Atlanta just before noon Wednesday by U.S. Marshals. He and Vernon Goodwin, Jr. were, as of Wednesday, charged with murder, armed robbery, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime for the death of 30 year old Adam Robinson.
Goodwin, Jr. was arrested in Valdosta on Friday, April 24th. Robinson was shot to death in his car in the 600 block of Rhone St. in Sparks around 8:30 p.m. on March 1st.
Sparks' Police Chief, Bob Meyer, said after Kelley wasn't found in Sparks he thought Kelley was likely in Valdosta or Tifton because he had family there.
"I just talked to Daylan last week and he was here in Sparks. But, at that time he didn't have a warrant on him," Chief Meyer explained.
As of Wednesday afternoon, Kelley was expected to be brought back to the Cook County Jail sometime Wednesday night.
Those with additional information on this investigation is encouraged to call the GBI Douglas Office at 912-389-4103, the Sparks Police Department or Cook County Sheriff's Office.
