Third murder suspect surrenders at sheriff’s office

Myison Iaeene Ellis, 38, of Waynesboro, had remained on the run since Monday night’s murder, according to the Fauquier County Sherif’s Office.
Authorities on Sunday morning arrested the third suspect in Monday’s murder of an 18-year-old Warrenton man.

Myison Iaeene Ellis, 38, of Waynesboro, turned himself in at the Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office at approximately 11:30 a.m., Sgt. James Hartman said.

The sheriff’s office Friday announced it had charged Mr. Ellis with first-degree murder, use of a firearm in commission of a felony and conspiracy to commit robbery in the death of Lincoln Williams Jr.

Mr. Williams died of a gunshot wound Monday night.

Detectives previously charged Daniel Martin Farmer II, 23,of Nokesville with first-degree murder and Lucretia Ann Robinson, 54, of Manassas with conspiracy to commit robbery in connection with the killing.

Mr. Ellis remains at the Fauquier County Adult Detention Center with no bond — as do the other two defendants.

“I want to thank the public for your help in the apprehension of this murder suspect,” Sheriff Bob Mosier said Sunday.

Although three suspects have been charged and are in custody, the investigation continues and Sheriff Mosier urged anyone with information about the murder to contact the Sheriff’s Office at 540-347-3300.

Fauquier sheriff’s investigators on Friday announced they had warrants for Mr. Ellis’ arrest.

In a Facebook video Friday, Sheriff Bob Mosier said authorities have tracked Mr. Ellis’ movements to Prince William and Nelson counties and Charlottesville.

Detectives already had charged Mr. Farmer with the first-degree murder but not with using a firearms in the crime.

Mr. Williams’ father told investigators that his son named “Rudeboy” as the person who shot him in the face outside the family home east of Warrenton, according to arrest documents. Lincoln Williams Sr. identified Mr. Farmer as “Rudeboy.”

Then, detectives charged Mr. Ellis with using a firearm to commit murder, suggesting they believe he pulled the trigger.
Mr. Farmer told detectives he had arranged to meet and buy drugs from Mr. Williams but that the meeting never took place, according to the arrest warrant.

Store video shows Mr. Williams leaving the Warrenton Walmart at about 10:24 p.m. Monday, according to court documents.

Bleeding profusely, he walked into his family’s home at 5042 Old Auburn Road, about five miles east of town, soon thereafter.

Responding to a 9-1-1 call from the home at 10:42 p.m., sheriff’s deputies and medics tried to save the teenager.

Mr. Williams died less than an hour later at Fauquier Hospital.
