Verdict Reached In Chambers County Murder Case

A jury has returned verdicts against three men charged in connection to the death of a Lanett man in 2014.

A Chambers County jury found 23-year old Thomas Starkey guilty of murder in the shooting death of 27-year old Christopher Griggs back in April 2014, at a home along 44th Avenue in Lanett. 

Two other men on trial this week, 18-year old Rocky Starkey and 25-year old Paul Teague were found guilty of manslaughter in the case. 

Prosecutors say the motive appears to be a revenge killing for items the victim may have stolen from some of the suspects.

Two other men have already pled guilty and been sentenced in this case.
