MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – On Tuesday, a Macon man was found guilty on multiple Murder charges.
A Bibb County jury found 34-year-old Javarius Davis guilty of Malice Murder, two counts of Felony Murder, Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon, Aggravated Assault, and Possession of a Firearm during the Commission of a Felony.
According to Macon Judicial Circuit District Attorney, Anita Howard, the crimes occurred in 2019 when Davis shot a man 10 times, execution style.

We are grateful for the help and support of all our law enforcement partners, but for this case in particular, we recognize the efforts of the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office,” said District Attorney Howard. “I acknowledge and appreciate the dedication of my staff that continue to execute the vision I promised the people by seeking and achieving justice for the crime victims of the Macon Judicial Circuit.”
