Suspects’ cases bound over

Suspects’ cases bound over

The court proceedings for four men arrested in connection with the Jan. 15 shooting death of 43-year-old Lori Ann Williams will continue for at least two of the suspects after a recent court appearance in Weakley County General Sessions Court.
Williams was found dead in her apartment at a complex on Highway 190 around 9 p.m. Jan. 15 by friends. She had apparently suffered gunshot wounds to the chest.
It only took two days for the Dresden Police Department, with assistance from the Weakley County Sheriff’s Department, Martin Police Department and Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, to charge four men in connection with the shooting death of Williams.
Nicholas Coleman, 18,  of North Street in Dresden was charged with first-degree murder.
He is also accused of taking her personal property including her purse, money and medication that evening.
Condarium Jones, 30, of East Maple Street in Dresden was charged with accessory to the crime. When executing his arrest warrant, Jones is also accused of evading Dresden Police officers. He faces an additional charge of evading arrest.
David McDonald Jr., 18, of Greenfield was charged also charged with accessory after the fact.
Jones and McDonald are accused of being at Williams’ home during the incident.
A fourth person, 20-year-old Austin Evans of Sharon, was also taken into custody that week and accused of driving the other three suspects to Williams’ apartment that night.
He was charged with accessory after the fact.
Since that time, District Attorney General Tommy Thomas dismissed the charges against Evans.
During a court appearance recently, the accessory charges against Jones and McDonald were bound over to the May term of the Weakley County Grand Jury. They are still being held in the Weakley County Detention Center.
Coleman was transported to a facility in Middle Tennessee to undergo a mental health evaluation. He has yet to return to the WCDC.  
He is represented by attorney Jim Powell of Union City.
