3 indicted in Albany murder

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Three men have been indicted in the murder of a man, shot to death on West Highland Avenue over the summer.

Mylan Mahoney, Malcolm Offord, and Jamie Washington were all indicted on nine counts of murder and aggravated assault.

They are charged with killing James Hawkins, whose body was found behind a motel on West Highland July 5th.

Jamie Washington was arrested in New York, where he was a shooting victim.

"He was arrested after being allegedly involved in a shooting incident in New York, where he was shot. And at that time he was hospitalized," said Dougherty D.A. Greg Edwards.

The District Attorney says they will attempt to extradite Washington back to Albany, for trial along with Mahoney and Offord.
