A Marine who has been charged for murdering his grandmother after going AWOL is now accused of a second murder.
Another person had previously been arrested in connection with Mills' death. Javon Oneil Richardson has been charged with obstruction of justice after allegedly attempting to present himself as a witness to the murder, according to police.
Caeser went AWOL from Fort Benning in Georgia nine days before Mills' murder last month.
Police have not revealed how Mills died or what Caesar's potential relationship to him was, but they said there is evidence connection Caeser to the killing. Caeser has family ties in the area where Mills lived, according to the Daily Herald in Roanoke Valley.
Caeser is already in jail for the murder of his grandmother Sally Copeland Evans, 74, who was found dead April 11 in a creek by her home in Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina. Police have not said how she was killed.
Before her death, she had tried to tell her grandson that he should return to his military post.
Police found Caeser at a hotel on Friday after he used his grandmother’s credit card to pay for a room. He was allegedly in possession of his grandmother’s stolen car at the time of his arrest. The car, which was previously gold, had been spray-painted black in an attempt to disguise it, according to the News & Observer. Caeser has been charged for her murder and he was also served with a fugitive warrant for desertion from the Marines.
Caeser is being held without bond. He is scheduled to appear in court May 16 for his grandma’s murder. A court date has not been set for his charge for Mills' death.
