Demopolis PD Makes Cold Case Arrests

Police in Demopolis have made two arrests in a case that dates back to February 2008.

Darius Powell, 18, and 24-year-old Jeffery Williams are charged with murder in the death of Randy Warren, 38.

Officials say Warren was found dead at 507 North Ash Street. Police say
the motive was drugs. A $5,000 reward from the governor's office helped crack the case and lead to the arrests.

'I do feel that that was very pivotal in bringing about the leads that ultimately led to the arrests of these suspects," said Marengo County district attorney, Greg Griggers.

The victim's son, Ranquan Warren, said he had doubted that any arrest would be made.

Family members say Warren was shot at least four times. For now, investigators say no other arrests are expected but the investigation is ongoing.

The case against Powell and Williams is expected to go before a grand jury in February 2010. If found guilty, both could face from 10 years to life in prison.
