CCSO Identifies Four Suspects in Murder of Teenager

On July 28th, 2009 17-year-old Lavonn Presley was shot and killed outside his Orange Park apartment at 1745 Wells Road. Four suspects are now in custody and linked to this case.

Antwan L. Mann of Jacksonville, age 19
Held on Clay warrant for 1st Degree Murder & Robbery with a Firearm (the gunman)
In custody in Duval County; No bond.

Tonee R. Huggins of Jacksonville, age 22
Held on Clay warrant for 3rd Degree Felony Murder & Grand Theft of Firearm
In custody in Leon County on unrelated warrant; $250,000 bond.

Devonta J. Mayberry of Jacksonville, age 18
Held on Clay warrant for 3rd Degree Felony Murder & Grand Theft of Firearm
In custody in Duval County; $250,000 bond.

Juanita Wedgeworth of Jacksonville, age 17
Charged with Accessory After the Fact – Murder
In Clay County Jail held on $100,000 bond.

CCSO Robbery-Homicide Unit detectives believe Wedgeworth drove the three male suspects to the victim’s apartment complex for a meeting with the victim regarding the purchase of firearms. The victim was shot by one of the suspects who was taking guns from the apartment without paying the victim for them. The suspects fled the scene with the stolen guns as the victim received assistance from the apartment complex office staff. Presley died shortly afterwards at the hospital (Shands Jax) from a single gun shot wound to his stomach. Presley was an emancipated juvenile living on his own at the complex.

After two months of intensive investigation, CCSO Det. Ken West identified the four suspects and was able to either arrest or obtain warrants/holds on them. Two of these suspects, Antwan Mann and Devonta Mayberry, are already in jail in Duval County because of their involvement in the death of Antonio Kendrick, a past accomplice of theirs who was shot and killed by a JSO officer while the group committed a criminal act in that county.

Please contact CCSO PIO Mary Justino at 213-6009 or Robbery-Homicide Lt. Joe Bucci at 213-6757 with any questions. Thank you.
