A Kansas farmer has filed a federal lawsuit seeking to stop a new wind farm from operating out of concern for the endangered whooping crane.

Three people facing charges in connection with a Tuesday morning murder in a Salina motel parking lot made their first court appearance Thursday morning in Saline County District Court.

Via closed circuit TV, 21-year-old DiAntre Marquelle Lemmie, 24-year-old Amber Nicole Craig, and 34-year-old Tyi Daniel appeared before Judge Renee Young. The judge read the charges each is facing.

Diantre Lemmie is facing charges that include:

  • 1st Degree Murder
  • Aggravated Robbery
  • Conspiracy to Commit Aggravated Robbery
  • Criminal Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon
  • Fleeing and Eluding

A motion has been filed to revoke Lemmie’s probation. He is currently on probation in a burglary case. Judge Young appointed a public defender to represent Lemmie.

Amber Craig is facing charges that include:

  • 1st Degree Murder
  • Aggravated Robbery
  • Conspiracy to Commit Aggravated Robbery

Craig is looking at the possibility of hiring her own attorney, so a public defender was not appointed for her, yet.

Lemmie and Craig are both accused conspiring to use a gun to rob 32-year-old Adonis Loudermilk, robbing him of cash, and in the process of committing the robbery killing him. The criminal possession of a firearm charge against Lemmie stems from a felony burglary conviction. The flee and elude charge stems from a short pursuit and foot chase that occurred a couple of hours after the murder.

If convicted, both could face a life sentence with a mandatory minimum of 25 years being eligible for parole.

Tyi Daniel is facing two charges. They include:

  • Obstructing Apprehension or Prosecution
  • Interference With Law Enforcement / Tampering With Evidence

Daniel was with Lemmie during the pursuit and foot chase. He indicated that he plans to hire his own attorney.

Bond for both Lemmie and Craig was set at $1 million. Daniel’s bond was set at $2,500.

The case stems from the shooting death of Adonis Loudermilk, who is from Nebraska. First responders were called to the Starlite Motel at 211E. Pacific at around 6:00 in the morning Tuesday to a report of shots fired. They found Loudermilk on the ground in the north end of the parking lot, deceased from a gunshot wound. Craig was taken into custody at the scene, and Lemmie was identified as a suspect.

At 8:38 in the morning Lemmie was taken into custody following a short high speed chase involving Salina Police and the Kansas Highway Patrol.

The chase was headed South on N. Santa Fe, when near the intersection with W. Lincoln, a long train crossing the street altered it. The suspect vehicle, a white full sized pickup truck, veered off the road and headed west driving parallel with the railroad tracks. After several hundred yards it became disabled in a muddy vacant lot. The occupants, Lemmie and Daniel, then bailed out and ran. Both were quickly caught and taken into custody.

All three defendants are scheduled to appear in court again on Monday.

21-year-old DiAntre Marquelle Lemmie and 24-year-old Amber Craig are facing charges that include felony murder, aggravated robbery, and conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery.
