Suspects returned to county
By SUE WATSON
Two suspects in the stabbing death of Tolbert Sholar Jr. and the aggravated assault of Reamus Williams were extradited to the Marshall County jail Wednesday, April 18. They are being held without bond, according to Sheriff Kenny Dickerson.
Anthony Green, 25, and Angie Jones, 24, who were apprehended in Memphis Sunday, April 15, waived extradition and were returned to Marshall County. They face charges of capital murder and aggravated assault in the death of Sholar and of aggravated assault in the stabbing and burning of Williams, Dickerson said.
Green and Jones made initial appearances in Marshall County Justice Court Thursday, April 19, and authorities asked the two be detained without bond, he said.
Justice Court referred the bond action to Marshall County Circuit Court and the suspects remain in jail with preliminary hearings set for May 21 in justice court, Dickerson said.
Investigation of the fire that burned Williams’ house to the ground is ongoing and a knife highly believed to have been used in the stabbings was recovered in the drain of a carwash in DeSoto County on Hacks Cross Road, Dickerson said.
The knife, along with other evidence, is being sent to crime laboratories for analysis.
Dickerson said after evidence collected in the case is returned, he will consult with district attorney Ben Creekmore regarding any additional charges that may be pursued.
Williams and Sholar were found in the yard at Williams’ house in the Watson community Saturday, April 14, by first responders, who were called to the smoking and flaming home. Sholar was already dead from multiple stab wounds and Williams was alive with multiple stab wounds and burns, Dickerson said. The house which burned to the ground is believed to have been started by gasoline during an altercation between the suspects and the two victims.
