Suspects Indicted In Murder Of Bath Man

Three suspects previously charged with the murder of a man from Bath, Beaufort County have now been indicted by a grand jury.

The Beaufort County Grand Jury indicted Arturo Lopez-Perez, Martel Weston, and Domonic Farrow for the original Murder charges and the additional charges of first degree burglary, first degree arson, armed robbery, and felony larceny. The one-million dollar bond was also increased by $100.000.

The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office says the three murdered 53-year-old Leonard Willson of Bath. Willson's body was found in his home on South Main Street October 7th.
Deputies say Willson was a paraplegic and he died from blunt force trauma to the head.
The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office says robbery seems to be a motive in the murder. Deputies found stolen computer equipment at the home where Weston was arrested. They say Willson was a mentor to 16-year-old Perez, and that the two knew each other for about a year.

    WHAT??????? I bet, if you are an overzealous LEO who would love to waste the states(tax payers) money on frivolous cases with shall we say little to no REAL evidence.I have seen cases where an individual was indicted with such circumstantial evidence that an idiot could tear the case apart , much less a lawyer..YOU ARE INSANE! . .I bet you would like to get rid of that part of the constitution about "unreasonable search & seizures" as well. We need every check & balance possible in place to keep the system as honest as possible.I mean who knows if you guys will start burning witches again.

    The sad thing is that Len would leave his house open- unlocked and go for hours on exercise. If this was only about stealing things they could have done it easily when he was not at the house. the Crime was about revenge and stupidity. The perps are going to jail for along time from not being smart enought to figure out that is wrong to go rob and kill or to help someone to do it. let em rot like the are now. The parents are just as much to blame by not taking care of what you created.

    Well, as a tax payer I guess I am flipping the bill for the public defender, his medical, meals in jail, heat/air conditioning, cable, and internet. The driver is as guilty as the triggerman.

    Tinkerbell, Let me cite an old German proverb: He whom holds the ladder is as guilty as the thief. That being said, Guilty as the company you keep. You are also known by the company you keep. Guilt by association. Don't you see the picture.

    to bruce the shark. let he who is without sin cast the first stone. just because the grand jury has indicted domonic does not mean he will be found guilty of murder, so get it right. I feel that justice will be served because this was a senseless murder, but they need to punish the actual person who hit this man in the head. so get ur facts before u post something as ignorant as that. it is too may people in jail for not doing something they did. no one said domonic was an angel because no one is perfect, but everyone knows he is not someone who would take someone's life, they are saying that he did not actually kill this man. there is a difference. so think before u speak. i hate people who think that there S$%^ does not stink and they are holier then thou, just be quiet and let God handle this. the only people who knows what happen are the people who were actually there and God, with that being said, we know domonic is not a murderer, so say what u want!
