MILLEDGEVILLE — A Baldwin County grand jury indicted 25-year-old Artenimus Mack Monday on six counts relating to the October 2012 death of a man whose body was discovered on Treanor Drive.

Mack, the lone suspect arrested and charged in the case, was indicted on one count of murder, two counts of felony murder, one count of armed robbery, one count of aggravated assault, and one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, all relating to the murder last year of 30-year-old Travin Davis. 

According to previous reports, Davis’ body was found on the side of the road in a remote section of Treanor Drive the morning of Oct. 31, 2012. An autopsy report confirmed that Davis was shot twice in the chest. 

After an extensive investigation by the Baldwin County Sheriff's Office, working in conjunction with the Newton County Sheriff's Office, Gwinnett County Sheriff's Office, Washington County Sheriff's Office and the Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force, Mack was arrested and charged in the case.   

According to Capt. Brad King of the Baldwin Sheriff's Office, when Mack was arrested, a couple pounds of marijuana and a gun was allegedly found in the trunk of the car.

Ocmulgee Judicial Circuit Chief Assistant District Attorney Stephen Bradley said DA’s office officials hope to put the case to rest soon.

The next step will be arraignment, which Bradley believes will be conducted within the next week.

"Hopefully we will be able to get this case into court soon so justice and peace can be given to this tragedy,” he said.
