DANVILLE, Va. (WFXR) – A Danville grand jury has indicted two individuals for the 2016 murder of Mark Anthony Graves.

The indictment came on Monday, June 22 for Tony Wayne Mayo, Jr., 24, and Devin Lamont Womack, 28, both of Danville.

Police in Danville say they responded to a call of shots fired at a residence in the 1300 block of Aspen Street on Sept. 30, 2016.

Graves was found inside of the house suffering from a gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Detectives have been following leads in the case and worked closely with the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office to bring the charges to the two men.

Police say Mayo and Womack both had a connection to the victim at the time and that this was not a random act.

Both men face first degree murder charges along with robbery and two counts of use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.

Mayo is being held in the Martinsville City Jail. Womack is being held in the Danville City Jail – both without bond.
