Bay County Murder Trial

Two people are in jail in connection with last weekend's murder in Bay County.

Police say 19-year-old Daryl Black was the triggerman. He's facing an open count of murder. Eighteen-year-old Eric Baker is charged with being a principle to first degree murder.

Authorities found 22-year-old Woodrow Cherry III just a few minutes before midnight Sunday. He'd been killed by several gunshots to the head. There was a single bullet hole in the his car window. Investigators say one of the suspects called some friends shortly after the shooting, bragging about it.

“We're going to send it to a grand jury so they can be indicted and there are indications it will be a first degree murder and we're hoping it is definitely looking like a first degree murder case,” said Bay County Sheriff Frank McKeithen.

This is the first murder investigation for the Bay County Sheriff's Office in 2006.
