Jerel Maceo Norman

Tuesday, September 22, 2009

A Henry County grand jury indicted an Axton man Monday on one count of first-degree murder, according to records at the Henry County Circuit Court Clerk's Office.

Jerel Maceo Norman, 21, of 7230 Axton Road, was indicted on one count each of first-degree murder, robbery and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.

The indictments are in connection with the May 21 shooting death of Lewis Anthony "A.J." Dillard Jr., 18, of Kings Mill Road, Ridgeway.

Based on statements from witnesses, a man approached Dillard in Sandy Level, "pulled a weapon and started firing," Henry County Sheriff Lane Perry has said.

Investigators believed ongoing problems led to the confrontation, which might have stemmed from an earlier incident involving drugs, Perry said.

During a brief hearing on Aug. 24, Norman waived his right to a preliminary hearing. That advanced the case to the grand jury on Monday.

An indictment is not an indication of guilt. It is a grand jury's determination that enough evidence exists to hold a trial.

Also among the 140 indictments issued Monday were:

"¢ Dennis Lamont Dorsey, 36, 1123 Chatham Heights, Martinsville, on one count second-degree murder of Annette Turner Vaughn on June 10.

Vaughn, 46, of 30 Erwin St. in Villa Heights, was found stabbed near her home about two hours after she summoned deputies there in connection with a domestic disturbance. At the time, she needed help in getting a man, identified during a preliminary hearing as Dorsey, to leave, police said.

Vaughn's neighbors reported hearing her scream around 2:13 a.m. June 10 and then found her outside. She had been stabbed in the back and was in critical condition the second time police arrived.

Vaughn, who suffered three stab wounds, died at Memorial Hospital in Martinsville, police have said.
