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.
