More arrests have been made in connection with the death of Charles James Hatfield. Those suspects went before a judge Monday in Abbeville.
Five more people have been arrested in connection with the murder of 23-year-old Charles “CJ” James Hatfield.
On March 13 of last year, Hatfield’s body was discovered off of Henry County Road 104 in Clopton. He reportedly died of multiple gun shot wounds.
Jewelry was also allegedly taken from Hatfield making the crime a capital offense.
Just days after the murder, authorities arrested their first suspect, 28-year-old James Adger Stuckey.
But someone must have had a slip of the tongue because now almost a year later five other suspects are in custody: Twenty-year-old Sarah Michelle Drescher, 36-year-old Mark Anthony Hammond, 23-year-old Morris Scott Mathis, 27-year-old James William Bailey IV and 24-year-old John Edward Parmer.
Davie Green, the mother of Hatfield’s children, says, "I’d like to see all of them found guilty and I’d like to see at least a couple of them. I’d like to see them take their last breath because they watched him take his. CJ wasn't a perfect person. CJ did things he should not have done, but he didn't deserve this, no one deserves this."
According to Hatfield’s family and friends, the female suspect was CJ's girlfriend and they were living with each other at the time of his death.
All six suspects are in jail under “no bond.” Authorities say still more arrests could be made in this case in the near future.
