FITZGERALD, GA (WALB) -

A hearing for one of the men indicted for the Craigory 'C. J.' Burch murder in Fitzgerald has been postponed.

Since his lawyer was not present, Anjevell Johnson asked to delay his hearing until his lawyer can be in court. 

The state says Johnson was with people who invaded Burch's home, and shot him to death, trying to steal some of the $434,272 he won in the Georgia Lottery in November.

The others are:

Dabrentise Coki Overstreet, Sr.
Nathaniel Baker
Wayan Malik Jordan
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.
