Martavius Hall
Martavius Hall is not guilty of the murder of Jowonzia Demon Ivey.
That was the verdict from a Warren County Superior Court Jury trying Hall Oct. 2 through Oct. 4 for the July 31, 2016, shooting and death of Ivey, 31, at the intersection of Hudson and Depot streets. Ivey, of the 200 block of Hudson Street in Warrenton, was transported to University McDuffie Hospital where he died.
The jury returned the not guilty verdict Oct. 4.
According to the Toombs Judicial Circuit District Attorney William “Bill” Doupe´, Ivey was shot multiple times at the intersection of Hudson and Depot streets around 3:41 a.m. following a dispute.
“He was shot multiple times and left in the street. The dispute was over a woman,” said Doupe´, who assisted Senior Assistant District Attorney DeShala Dixon in prosecuting the murder case.
Hall was represented in the Oct. 2-4 murder trial by Attorney Pete Theodicion of Augusta.
Theodicion argued that the prosecution could not prove that his client was present at the shooting. The prosecution felt that it had sufficient evidence to convict Hall.
Hall was also found not guilty of aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.
