Two Accused In Murder Case Appear in Court

KSAL Staff - May 2, 2016 4:20 pm

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

Two people facing murder charges in connection with a shooting death in a Salina motel parking lot last week appeared in person for the first time in Saline County District Court Monday afternoon. 21-year-old DiAntre Marquelle Lemmie and 24-year-old Amber Nicole Craig appeared together before Judge Jared Johnson.

The Judge appointed a public defender for Craig. Lemmie had one appointed last week.

Both are accused in the shooting death of 32-year-old Adonis Loudermilk.

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

Amber Craig is facing charges that include:

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

Lemmie and Craig are both accused conspiring to use a gun to rob 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.

Bond for both Lemmie and Craig has been set at $1 million.  They were scheduled to appear in court again next week for a preliminary hearing.

A third defendant in the case, 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.

So now the taxpayers have to pay for them. Here is a matter that should be handled the same way they did by shooting both of them and be done with it. People that kill people like they did do not deserve to live.
