A Boyle County grand jury has indicted one of the men charged in the shooting death of a Danville woman but did not find enough evidence to indict the other.
Lamar Stallworth of Danville was indicted for murder and first-degree wanton endangerment in the Oct. 10 death of Mellisa Luna-White, who was shot to death just inside the front door of her apartment on Longview Drive. Stallworth, 27, continues to be held in the Boyle County Detention Center without bond.
“We presented the fact situation to the grand jury, and they didn’t see enough evidence to issue an indictment against Mr. Harlan,” Commonwealth’s Attorney Richie Bottoms said this morning. “According to witnesses, Mr. Harlan did not play a role in the actual shooting.”
According to arrest citations in the case, Stallworth and Harlan went to Luna-White’s apartment, where they got into a fight with another man, identified as Derrick Ball, on the front steps. As Harlan was scuffling with Ball, Stallworth pulled a handgun and fired two shots toward the front door where Luna-White was standing.
Police have not said whether it was Luna-White or Ball who was the intended target of the gunshots. The wanton endangerment charge against Stallworth stems from the shots fired in Ball’s direction.
