A man in South Carolina already in custody as a suspect in a murder was charged with a second slaying after he recently wrote about it in a letter, an arrest warrant states.
Jamie Gavantay Williams, 25, had been incarcerated on murder-related charges in the York County jail in connection to the fatal shooting of a 32-year-old man in November.
On Feb. 10, Rock Hill Police Department Lt. Michael Chavis confirmed Williams is now suspected in a second killing — the Aug. 31 fatal shooting of Antwan Agurs outside an apartment building, The Herald reported.
According to the warrant, Williams recently wrote a letter that allegedly contained previously unreleased details about Agurs’ murder. Police did not publicly release what those alleged details may have included.
The warrant also claims Williams was wearing a GPS ankle monitor because of an unrelated arrest that allegedly shows he was in the area around the time Agurs was shot.
The 30-year-old victim died from his injuries on Sept. 8.
Police have charged Williams with Agurs’ murder as well as possession of a weapon during a violent crime, and unlawful carrying of a pistol.
He was transported from the Moss Justice Center in York to Rock Hill jail and was being held without bond.
