A Morgan County grand jury indicted four people on murder charges last month, according to court records.

Darrin Samone Wilkes, 23, of Huntsville, and Terrance Shaquille Ellison, 23, of Harvest, were indicted on capital murder charges in the Aug. 20, 2016, shooting death of Braxton Edwards of Decatur that left his brother Cameron Edwards hospitalized.

According to court testimony, Braxton Edwards was shot three times — twice in the arm and once in the back — outside his home at 1007 Danville Road S.W. He died shortly later in his home, authorities said.

Latoria Marsha McGuire, 26, of Decatur, was indicted on a murder charge after she was accused of fatally shooting Caridad Stripe, of Decatur. Court testimony said the shooting stemmed from an argument of the two women about a man.

Court records show the shooting occurred at Courtyard Apartments on Aug. 7.

A Georgia man was indicted on a capital murder charge for allegedly shooting his girlfriend in a Decatur motel on July 22.

Carey LaGrant Davis, 25, Norcross, Georgia, is accused of shooting Tiara Alexandra Cole, 22, of Lawrenceville, Georgia, once in the head. A housekeeper at the Quality Inn in Southwest Decatur found Cole's body in the hotel July 22, Decatur police said.

Davis was arrested a few hours after the shooting in Gwinnett County, Georgia, police records said.

He was transported to the Morgan County Jail and was served with the murder warrant Oct. 7, police said. He is in the county jail without bond.
