Trial for Mays, Accomplices Delayed Until October

The trial of accused murderer Cameron Mays and his alleged accomplices – Brandon Bonton, Markeva Daye, and Robert Demps – was delayed until October 29, 2018, after a joint prosecution/defense motion for the delay was filed Friday morning in Third Judicial District (Lincoln, Union Parishes) Court in Ruston.

The trial had been set for this morning. No reason was stated in court for the motion.

Mays is charged with a June, 2012 crime spree that resulted in the murder of retired Grambling State University Professor Dr. Sue Hashway, and the aggravated rape and kidnapping of a Louisiana Tech University co-ed.

Mays was convicted in April, 2016 of kidnapping, aggravated rape, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Among Bonton’s charges are theft, accessory to burglary, accessory to murder 2nd and drug possession.

Daye and Demps are both charged with accessory to murder 2nd, accessory to burglary, drug possession, and possession of stolen things.

Mays was not in court, nor was his attorney, James Buckley. Appearing for the prosecution was Assistant Attorney General Madeleine Slaughter-Young.

Representing Bonton was Monroe attorney Bob Noel, who was not present. Daye and Demps were represented by Ruston attorney Forrest Moegele, who was present in court.

Presiding was Division B Judge Tommy Rogers.
