A man accused of killing his former girlfriend as she tearfully apologized on Facebook has been scheduled for his next appearance in Caddo District Court.
Johnathan Tremaine Robinson, 36, of Shreveport, faces charges of second-degree murder and attempted murder, following the slaying of Rannita Williams, 27, in her Shreveport home April 12, 2018. Williams was shot with a rifle while on the social media exchange Facebook during an hourlong-plus standoff between Robinson and Shreveport police on Natalie Street in the Caddo Heights neighborhood.
During a hearing Monday before Caddo District Judge Ramona Emanuel, Robinson was scheduled to appear again in court May 29, 2018, for the preliminary examination. No other substantive events occurred during the court appearance, according to Mekisha Smith Creal, Assistant District Attorney and Section Chief for Section 3 of the Caddo Parish District Attorney’s office.
Robinson’s case still has to be submitted to the Grand Jury for formal charges to be lodged against him.
The prosecutor is Assistant District Attorney Monique Y. Metoyer. Robinson is defended by Kurt Goins.
