AUGUSTA, Ga-- Richard Williams is in an Atlanta jail cell, and he faces a second charge of murder relating to his alleged crime spree on Friday.

Williams already faces another murder charge, and 2 counts of kidnapping.

44-year-old Robert Williams, the uncle of suspect Richard Williams died at MCG around 11:30 Saturday night.

He was shot three times in the abdomen and once in the head early Friday morning at the barber shop he owned on Milledgeville Road in Augusta.

Investigators say after Williams shot the 2 victims, he then kidnapped 2 men, 19-year-old Lorenzo Harris and 18-year-old Torrance Haskell, and forced them to drive him to Atlanta.

Nine hours later, the 2 men broke free and called police.
