A 17-year-old Paris man pleaded guilty Tuesday to murder in the May 17 shooting death of Roland Dekeith “Cujo” Williams and was sentenced to 14 years in prison.
The plea by Treveonta Breondre Clark, 17, of 322 NE 17th St. is the second guilty plea in six days by a co-defendant in the case. Quindarrius Deiondre Lyons, 16, of Paris pleaded guilty on Wednesday and also received 14 years in prison after Lamar County Court-at-Law Judge Bill Harris certified him to stand trial as an adult.
Clark and Lyons were taken into custody on May 21 on a warrant for Clark and a directive to apprehend the juvenile.
Two other men — Adrianandius Lajuan Blackeyes, 21, of 1640 W. Henderson St. and Tyriekus Drashon Edwards, 18, of 1038 Fitzhugh St. – were arrested on May 18. They remain in Lamar County Jail on $750,000 bond on capital murder charges.
Williams was found shot to death by police officers who responded at about 4:30 a.m. to reports of shots fired near Southwest 19th Street and Austin Street. His body was lying in the driveway of a vacant house next door to the duplex he was staying in.
Police said the shooting occurred during a home invasion robbery attempt. Williams’ girlfriend said four men wearing masks broke into the residence. Williams went outside with the men, and shots were heard moments later.

A man and woman were arrested over the weekend when a routine traffic stop led to the finding of large amounts of packaged narcotics in the car with an infant present, according to Lamar County Sheriff Scott Cass.
On routine patrol in Blossom on July 12, Lamar County sheriff deputies Johnathan Smith and Sheridan Jones initiated a traffic stop on a male and female subject in the 500 block of Front Street.
Jeffrey Charles Fendley, 43, of 3575 FM 196 was found to be operating the vehicle without a valid Texas drivers’ license or insurance. A further check showed Fendley had a warrant out of Lamar County for a Class A misdemeanor theft charge.
During the vehicle inventory, deputies located a large amount of individually packaged methamphetamine. Deputies seized more than $1,000 in cash and Fendley’s 2003 Chevrolet pickup, Sheriff Scott Cass said.
Fendley was arrested on the following charges:
Driving w/ License Invalid w/ No Financial Responsibility (Class C Misdemeanor)
Deputies also discovered a passenger, Jessica Nicole Mitchell, 25, of 525 Young St., Blossom, to be in possession of narcotics while an infant was present in the vehicle when the traffic stop was made.
Officials with Child Protective Services were called to the scene to take custody of the child.
Mitchell was arrested on the following charges:
“This is good police work with an officer initiating in activity that resulted in removing a large amount of drugs from the street,” Cass said. “This also resulted in getting the child removed from this environment and got her safe.”
Fendley and Mitchell were taken to the Lamar County Jail, with Fendley’s bond and fines totaling $78,200 and Mitchell’s totaling $85,400.
