FITZGERALD, GA (WALB) - The April term of the Ben Hill County Grand Jury returned 'True Bills' for the seven people involved in the Craigory 'C.J.' Burch murder on Monday.  They invaded his home, and shot him to death, trying to steal some of the $434,272 he won in the Georgia Lottery in November.

They are:

Dabrentise Coki Overstreet, Sr.
Nathaniel Baker
Wayan Malik Jordan
Anjevell Vail Johnson
Keyana Dyous
Earnest Holcomb
Rosalyn Renise Swain

They are all charged with: Malice Murder, Felony Murder, two counts of Aggravated Assault, Home Invasion, Violation of Street Gang Terrorism and Prevention Act, two counts, two counts of Armed Robbery, four counts of Possession of Firearm During Commission of a Felony, and Possession Of Firearm by a Convicted Felon.

Craigory Burch Jr., a 20-year-old fork lift driver, purchased his winning Quik Pik ticket at H & R Food Mart, in Warner Robins.

The lucky lottery winner was in disbelief when he discovered he'd won, when WALB interviewed him last December. "I couldn't believe it at first. I was stunned," Burch said. "I'm still overwhelmed."

Brad Rigby presented the cases as his first time as acting D.A., as he awaits appointment from Governor Nathan Deal to the Office of District Attorney.

"Brad has been an asset to the Office of Sheriff in presenting our cases in a very professional and effective manner for the past twelve years," said Sheriff Bobby McLemore. "He handled all our drug forfeiture cases while working with the Prosecuting Attorney's Council in Albany before joining the Cordele Judicial Circuit's District Attorney's Office. Our thanks to Brad and the D.A.'s Office for their support over the years."
