Albany police make a second arrest in the city's latest murder. Investigators initially said 29-year-old Robert Lee Williams was only a person of interest in the case. But after interviewing Williams, detectives say they discovered a number of inconsistencies with his story. They charged Williams with murder, theft by taking and giving false statements. Those charges are in connection with the death of 19-year-old Justin Cox, whose body was found floating in the Flint River two weeks ago. Cox died from blunt force trauma to the head. On Tuesday, police arrested 20-year-old Kasaem Toomer. Investigators say Toomer confessed to killing Cox when the two got into a fight October 3rd. Two Turner Job Corps students found Cox's body a couple of days after the murder. Toomer and Williams made their initial appearances in court Wednesday. Bond was denied for both men.
