Inmate from Albany killed in state prison

Laderick Chappel

JACKSON — An Albany man serving time in a Georgia prison for murder was killed by five other prison inmates last week, officials with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation say.

The GBI has charged five inmates at the Georgia Diagnostic and Classification Prison in Jackson with the armed robbery and murder of Laderick Cornellius Chappel, 33, of Albany, a news release from the law enforcement agency says.

The inmates were charged as a result of an investigation conducted by agents with the GBI Milledgeville Regional Office and prison officials early Friday morning after Chappel was robbed and thrown to his death from the second floor of a prison dormitory, the release states.

An autopsy conducted Friday at the GBI Crime Lab in Decatur indicated Chappel died from blunt force trauma resulting from the fall, the GBI stated.

The inmates charged with armed robbery and murder in connection to the incident are William Woodrow Wells, 21, of Louisville; Dante Ray Myles, 27, of Covington; Niko Lamar Swann, 23, of Atlanta; Demarcus D. Crew, 19, of Elberton, and Justin O’neal Clinkscales, 27, of Hartwell.

Information from the Georgia Department of Corrections website indicates that Chappel was incarcerated for a murder that took place in October 2010.

This sentence stemmed from the pipe-beating death of Frankie Carr, 54, on East Broad Avenue in Albany.

Chappel was initially arrested on Nov. 12, 2010, in Atlanta on warrants that had been issued by the Albany Police Department in connection to the homicide of Carr.

Records dating to 1998 show Chappel had also been previously convicted of terroristic threats and acts, possession of cocaine, robbery by intimidation and disorderly conduct.

I pray that the Lord comfort his family. I beg you to please show a little more respect for the deceased. His family could be reading this story. I don't know if he had children, but if he did - I hope they don't see the comments following this article.

Some people need to learn how to respect the dead, no matter what they did in life. he's still human and humans aren't perfect. everyone has done something and made mistakes or have trouble and most inmates have mental problems but don't want to admit they have a mental condition so they don't get the help they need.

People do need to realize some inmates do have mental health problems and they don't want to admit it that's why they will not get the help they need not the ones that fake it but the people with real mental health

Chappel's murder is regrettable but I don't understand why the issue of mental health is inserted here. In reading the article I see no mention of anyone having an emotional disorder. Is someone supplying information or are there well known issues surrounding the case that people just know about? His attackers have been identified and will be punished.

I am utterly disgusted by some of the comments here. A criminal or not he is still a human being. Taking joy in the brutal murder of someone? I hope that DCHAPPELL really isn't related to the late Mr. Chappell.

WWJD?

I DON'T BELIEVE ANYONE HAS EXPRESSED JOY IN HIS BRUTAL MURDER AND NO IS PARTICULARLY SADDENED EITHER. I'M SURE THE CARR FAMILY IS POPPING CHAMPANGE. BEAT MR CARR TO DEATH FOR NO APPARENT REASON.

They say you live by the sword and die by the sword, in this case, he killed brutally and he died brutally. Sounds like an even swap to me.
