Calik Kentwan Wilson, Shaiki Kent Wilson, Quantae Symel Jones and Amanda Yandle (from left) have been charged in the Aug. 30, 2014, slaying of DeKendric Graham.

— Cumberland County sheriff’s deputies have charged four suspects in the armed robbery and shooting death last month of a Fayetteville man believed to be a drug dealer.

DeKendric Graham, 31, was found about 4:30 a.m. on Aug. 30 outside a home on Ireland Drive, where he was visiting friends after leaving a nightclub. He died a short time later at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center.

Detectives said Thursday that the suspects planned to rob Graham because he was a drug dealer known to keep large amounts of cash and drugs.

The following suspects were charged:

  • Quantae Symel Jones, 22, of 3024 High Plains Drive in Hope Mills, first-degree murder, armed robbery and conspiracy. He was being held in the Cumberland County Detention Center.
  • Calik Kentwan Wilson, 21, of 346 Rosemary St. in Fayetteville, first-degree murder and robbery with a dangerous weapon. He was being held in the Cumberland County Detention Center.
  • Shaiki Kent Wilson, 20, of 3900 Lewisburg Court in Fayetteville, first-degree murder, robbery with a dangerous weapon and conspiracy. He has been jailed since Oct. 7 on unrelated charges.
  • Amanda Yandle, 26, of 4001 Glenn Road in Parkton, accessory after the fact to murder. She was released on bond from the Cumberland County Detention Center.

    Being a drug dealer, has it's own risks. Not that all dealers should be killed, but at the same time, there is one less dealer on the street. There are also 3 out of 4 other criminals, murderers, thieves, who will now be in prison for a long time. All in all, I am pleased.
