Macon man accused of killing wife has day in court

Willis Roberts asks for a comitment hearing from Judge Harris.

A Macon man accused of killing his wife last September appeared before a magistrate Wednesday.

Willis Deterra Roberts is 40-years-old and charged with killing Crystal Walker.

Magistrate Barbara Harris ordered him held without bond and set up Roberts commitment hearing for March 23rd. Investigators named Roberts as a person of interest in the case last year but he was not arrested until yesterday.

We went out to the neighborhood, Glenwood Village Apartments, where Walker was killed. Neighbors told us they saw Roberts at the apartment not long after the murder.
