Suspect in 8-year-old's shooting death extradited from Alabama
News


Dennis Eason, one of six men charged with killing an 8-year-old in Fort Valley earlier this year, was extradited from Alabama Thursday.

Peach County Sheriff Terry Deese says Eason is scheduled to appear in Magistrate Court Friday morning. He is charged with murder.

Eason told a judge in January that he would fight the extradition. The judge told him that the process may take several months, but he was confident that Eason would return to Georgia eventually to face charges in the case.

Jai'mel Anderson, 8, was shot several times at the Indian Oaks apartments on east Church Street in January. He later died at the Medical Center of Peach County, Navicent Health.

His mother's boyfriend, Dejad Williams, along with Tevin Sams, Jeremy Jackson, Antonio Garvin, and Kristian Wipfel are all also charged with murder in the case.
