Two Facing Felony Murder Charges

Todd Pittenger - April 27, 2016 10:55 am

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 from Salina are facing felony murder charges in connection with the fatal shooting of a man from Nebraska in the parking lot of a Salina motel early Tuesday morning.

Salina Police Captain Chris Trocheck says that 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 in connection with the shooting death of 32-year-old Adonis Loudermilk. Additionally, 34-year-old Tyi Daniel is facing a charge of obstruction apprehension or prosecution.

First responders were called to the Starlite Motel at 211E. Pacific at around 6:00 in the morning 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.

Police said that several shots had been fired.

Trocheck says that Lemmie was identified as the 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 another man identified as Tyi Daniel, then bailed out and ran. Both were quickly caught and taken into custody.

Trocheck says that everyone involved in the incident are acquaintances. They were all together in a room at the motel. At some point there was a disturbance, followed by the shooting in the parking lot.

Trocheck says that the gun has been recovered.

Deputy Police Chief Sean Morton commended everyone who worked on the case for getting a quick arrest. “I think our officers and detectives came together and did an outstanding job of being focused, determining who the suspects were, locating them, and making arrests and clearing this homicide in a short amount of time.”

Trocheck adds that the investigation is still ongoing. Anyone who has any information is asked to contact Salina Police, or Crimestoppers at 825- TIPS, text SATIPS to CRIMES (274637), or visit www.pd.salina.org and follow Crimestoppers link to submit a web tip

How dare you put this out there without contacting the next of kin!!! That takes an amazing amount of dehuminaztion and a cold heart to not think how his FAMILY AND ESPECIALLY HIS MOTHER would feel. My brother is Adonis Loudermilk and he is 32 YEARS OLD. Amazing father of 2 among other things. Your police department STILL has not contacted my mother in regards to the whole situation and refused to give us any information but its ok to have it all over the news and on FACEBOOK?! And we were treated with no compassion or understanding by the blonde female detective when we were trying to get information. I’m grateful you apprehended the murderers already but you dropped the ball on this part and should be ashamed of yourself. How cold can you be?

Meshia, I am so sorry for the loss of your brother. It is absolutely despicable that the SPD would not contact your family before this publication; what a terrible shock for your family. The rude behavior of the detective is inhumane. Frankly, I am not surprised. Please know that I have been praying for your family since I first heard of a death, and will continue to do so. May God hold you close.

They were all thugs probably doing drugs in the motel before it happened. Maybe your brother should have gotten a good job and spent time with his kids instead of some run down motel. I understand he is still your brother and his mother will feel bad that is just the way it is. You live by the gun do drugs run with other thugs you end up dying by the gun.

To Doug and Gary, for your information you insensitive *********: he was on his way to visit our grandmother in the hospital and had stoped in Salina to see his father on the way. THAT is why he wasn’t at home with his children. He was on his way to visit his family and luckily his children were not with him to witness this awful tragedy. Go **** yourselves. If you don’t know the story, then keep the speculation to yourselves, you ********. Regardless of what happened and how, our family is devastated by the loss of one of our own. Bottom line, his sisters and mother and father need support, not ignorant speculation. Your comments do nothing but upset and stir up unnecessary emotions.

Doug Clemens you can eat ****! My brother was on his way to Kansas to visit our grandmother who is in the hospital. He stopped in your raggedy ass city on the way to reach out to his FATHER who is struggling with his life right now. So now the son is paying for the father’s sins. And say what the **** you mean and mean what you say. I know EXACTLY what you meant by “thug.” My brother had a great job at Ag source in Nebraska. And yes Gary Henderson he is a great father. The mistake he made was reaching out to someone else in need so before you want to get on here making judgements and condemning someone for the ****** job your news station did on this report you might wanna stop and be a human for a second. Here’s the way this story should have been reported. https://www.facebook.com/pamela.p.light/posts/1399624676729910

My brother didn’t know those people. He was getting robbed and lost his life over some bullshit. It never ceases to amaze me how you people will always find a way to blame the victim.

Thank you Susan Lee and Schelli Winston for kind words. For your strong words!! Words of positivity and encouragement. My family is devastated and this has been the longest 2 days our lives. I greatly appreciate support!! And Ballek Endallbrit thank you, that was the best.

OMG I don’t know why I even try to **** with you pos Gary Henderson. FYI Gary everyone has a past including you. Nobody said the man was ******* perfect. Are you? Where did Mother Mary give birth to you? See I’ve found out in life that people like you , ya know the ones with all the time on their hands to make judgements on other people, end up being the ones that have the darkest secrets. If I had more time and gave a **** I’d take the time to do some digging and find out what that is. I knew a man who once told me that people who listen to rap music are the type of people who steal. So we all know what he was trying to say right? He’s currently serving a life sentence for child molestation and exploitation. My guess your sins are just as bad if not worse then my brother’s “fight” in his past. Why are you taking so much time to try and condemn my brother! Seriously *** and **** ***.

Meshia- just wanted to tell you that I got to spend time with your brother in Feb/March when he came to my place of work and he was a lot of fun to be around. He was always very happy and made me laugh. I’m very sad to hear that this happened and I hope all the best for you and all of his family.

Thank you Sam.I have visited different sites just wanting to read about and see different people’s experiences with him. And memories of him. I appreciate everyone who has taken the time to share those. They are very comforting to myself and my family.

Please watch your language on this posting site…many people see your posts including children and the elderly. You can state your view without using swear words. It seems your generation thinks they can throw around curse words like everyday language. Well most civilized and good folks don’t see it that way. So get your mind out of the gutter. Thank You!

Meshia, you don’t know me but I worked with Adonis here at AgSource for the past couple of years. I wanted you and your family to know we are all very saddened by his passing. He was an important part of our team and performed many jobs in the laboratory with concern and talent. He was smart, friendly and upbeat at all times and a perfect fit for the team here. He took time to care for his kids as well and we will all miss him greatly and offer our sincerest condolences to you. Please try to disregard the trolls on this board, they suffer from a form of social retardation and just come across as pathetic. Again, all the best wishes to you and your family in your grief. We miss your brother.

Meshia, I am so very, very sorry for your loss. My heart is aching because of this. Adonis was a kind and gentle soul, who always seemed to have a smile on his face and always seemed to be able to make us laugh. You and your family are in my prayers.
