Robert Lee Miller III, accused in Columbus’ most recent homicide, fatally shot Antonio Deshawn Robinson over a disagreement about women, a police sergeant testified Wednesday.
Miller, 18, faces charges of murder, aggravated assault and a weapons violation in the April 21 shooting of Robinson, 19. Robinson was shot in the head as he drove north on Brown Avenue early that morning after leaving the Cream Club on 10th Avenue with two cousins, Sgt. Lance Deaton said in Columbus Recorder’s Court.
Miller pleaded not guilty to his charges Wednesday. Senior Judge Michael Cielinski then ordered Miller held without bond and bound his case over to Muscogee County Superior Court.
A second suspect in the shooting, 19-year-old Javonta Saquan Harris, is wanted for murder. He remains at large.

“He made a brief statement, but not admitting to the shooting,” Deaton said of Miller. “When it came to the club and it came to the shooting, he wouldn’t say anything at all.”
