COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -  A murder suspect is expected to appear in Recorder's Court Tuesday afternoon.

Samuel Donaldson turned himself in to police Monday afternoon. He's charged with shooting and killing Eric Mays last Friday night, outside the Fat Trees Club on Schatulga Road.

Mays was there to celebrate his wedding anniversary, but was apparently shot following an argument.

Monday, Antonio Myricks appeared briefly in court. He is also accused of shooting Eric Mays.

He chose to waive his right to a first hearing, and his case was sent straight to superior court, without bond.
