Next week, Kendrick Mizell, 29, is set to stand trial for the murder of Antravious Johnson, 22. Johnson was killed on Feb. 28, 2021, at the 900 block of South Gaskin Avenue in Douglas.
Authorities allege that Johnson was sitting in the driver’s side of a vehicle on South Gaskin Avenue when Mizell walked up to the vehicle and began shooting. Johnson was hit in the head, back, and hand.
Mizell was identified as a suspect almost immediately following Johnson’s death. He was arrested in March of 2021 without incident in Ware County with the assistance of the Ware County Sheriff’s Office and the U.S. Marshals Service. He has been in the Coffee County Jail ever since.
Jury selection will begin Monday morning with opening arguments starting shortly after the jury is seated.
Note: Mizell's trial was continued until May due to not being able to locate witnesses for the proceedings.
