Hearing for murder case scheduled for this morning in Columbus Recorder's Court

The initial court hearing for the second of two men accused of fatally shooting Antonio Deshawn Robinson last month is scheduled for this morning.

Javonta Saquan Harris, 19, was arrested Friday at a Knox Street home after police received a tip.

He faces a murder charge in connection with the April 21 shooting death of Robinson, 19.

The Columbus Recorder's Court hearing for Harris was set for Monday morning, though defense attorney Stacey Jackson couldn't appear because he was in Muscogee County Superior Court. Held without bond, Harris is now scheduled to appear at 9 a.m. today in Recorder's Court.

Columbus police say Robinson was shot early April 21 while driving north on Brown Avenue.

The shooting appeared to stem from a disagreement over women at the Cream Club on 10th Avenue.

Robinson was with two cousins at the club talking to some women when Harris allegedly threatened them, a sergeant previously testified.

Police say Robinson left with his cousins and was followed by Harris and Robert Lee Miller III, 18, who also faces a murder charge.

Harris and Miller then shot at Robinson's car near George Street and Brown Avenue, killing Robinson.

Miller was arrested about a week after Robinson's death. He's pleaded not guilty.
