Bainbridge, GA- Two suspects have been charged with the April 8th murder of James Curtis Christian Jr.

Decatur County Sheriff’s Investigators charged Marquez Taylor, 16, of 128 Black Jack Road, and Willie Earl McGriff, 25, of 115 Rosa Lee Lane in Attapulgus, with the murder of 29-year-old Christian.

Christian was found shot outside of his home at 137 Bruce Road shortly after 3 a.m. on April 8. His girlfriend said he walked into their bedroom and said, “Somebody shot me,” according to investigators.

Christian was found outside of the home where he collapsed, apparently trying to get to his mother’s home, 20 to 30 yards away.

“People in the community pointed us in the right direction, leading us to the suspects and other parties involved that had information,” said Nix.

He said one of the witnesses said they saw Taylor with a gun and ski mask—similar to one found at the scene. Three other witnesses said McGriff had spoken about the shooting in their presence. More on The Post-searchlight
