HOMERVILLE, GA (WALB) - The mother of the college student murdered at a Homerville nightclub last year thanked those who helped bring indictments against the suspects, on Wednesday.
WALB reported Tuesday that Trevor Dennard Posley, Dexter Jamal Freeney, and Steven Maurice Monroe have been indicted on 48 counts each, including murder, related to the May 10th, 2014 shooting death of Clay Cross at Club 912.
Cross's mother, Ronda Cross-Scott, said the indictments are a relief, but there is still a lot that needs to be done.
"We still have a long way to go in, again, seeking justice and also making individuals and also public officials accountable," said Ronda Cross-Scott.
She went on to explain that the indictments represent a big step towards bringing to light and ultimately ending what she claims is corruption in Clinch County. "I see this as a great opportunity to root out public corruption and racketeering and to give the citizens of Homerville...a better quality of life."
As of Wednesday, all three suspects remained in jail on $500,000 bond each.
