Two additional suspects have been jailed in the county’s first murder of the year.

Jamaal Green has been charged with murder and Amanda Williamson as accessory after the fact in the February killing and armed robbery of Jacqueline Elaine “Lynn” Landreth of Clarkton. Jail reports and warrants show the two were arrested Wednesday.

Green, who listed no address other than the city of Lumberton, is charged with murder, robbery with a dangerous weapon, and a probation violation. He is being held under no bond. 

Williamson, 41, was charged with two counts of failure to appear and one of accessory after the fact. Her bond was set at $100,000. Her address was listed as 2456 Haynes Lennon Hwy., Cerro Gordo.

Timothy Ray Cain II had already been charged in the killing, according to warrants. Cain, 28, lives at 641 Merritt Rd., Chadbourn. He was charged with murder and robbery with a dangerous weapon, according to warrants. He was arrested at Williamson’s home on Feb. 25, the day after Landreth’s body was found.

Landreth was reported missing Feb. 8 after leaving her Rosindale Road home near Clarkton. Her truck was found Feb. 24 in Columbus County, the sheriff’s office said, the same day the victim’s body was found. The state medical examiner confirmed that the body was that of Landreth.

Cain and Green allegedly shot Landreth, then stole her truck and cellphone. Williamson is alleged to have sheltered the two male suspects. 

This is a developing story.
