Two Accused In Murder Case Appear in Court

KSAL StaffMay 2, 2016

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.
