The Goldsboro Police Department charged a man today in connection with the July 31, 2016, murder of U.S. Air Force airman Ryan Apollo Morgan, who was stationed at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base when he was killed.
Bobby Mandrell Williams, 36, of Walstonburg, is charged with an open count of murder for his role in the shooting death of Morgan, 32, and is being held without bond in the Greene County Detention Center pending his first appearance in Wayne County District Court on Jan. 17.
Williams was already incarcerated in Greene County on unrelated charges when he was served with today's arrest warrant, according to a press release.
Morgan was shot and killed in the 100 block of North Center Street last year. The motive for the killing has not yet been released.
Morgan was taken to the emergency room at Wayne Memorial Hospital, where he died from his wounds.
A press release from Seymour Johnson Air Force Base at the time of his slaying said that Morgan was originally from Alabama and had been stationed at SJAFB since 2013. He enlisted in the Air Force in 2009.
Morgan was a senior airman working as a contract specialist for the 4th Contracting Squadron on base.
