25-year-old Stephen McDaniel is charged with Felony Murder, according to the inmate search on the Bibb County Sheriff's Office website.
McDaniel has been a person of interest in the murder of Mercer Law grad, 27-year-old Lauren Giddings, that happened on June 30. At this time we can not confirm he is charged in this particular incident. However, McDaniel has been the focal point in this case, as Gidding's neighbor at the Barristers Hall apartment complex in downtown Macon.
We do know Macon Police Chief Mike Burns met with the Bibb County DA and Assistant DA today, along with the FBI to discuss details in this case.
Macon Police sent out a news release tonight announcing they will update the media on the Giddings homicide tomorrow afternoon, but say they will not provide any further information at this time.
