Lucretia Ann Robinson, 54, was charged Thursday, Aug. 29, with conspiracy to commit robbery, according to Sgt. James Hartman, spokesman for the Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office.

On Wednesday, Daniel Martin Farmer II, 23, of Nokesville, was charged with first-degree murder in the death of Lincoln Williams, Jr., 18, of Warrenton.

"It's believed at this point that they conspired to rob the victim," Hartman said Friday morning. "In the commission of that robbery, [Williams] was shot, resulting in his death."

Farmer remains in custody. His next court date is scheduled for Nov. 14 at 1 p.m. 

Robinson was being held at the Fauquier County Adult Detention Center with no bond at the time of her arrest, Hartman said.

911 was called at 10:42 p.m. Monday, Aug. 26, when Williams came home bleeding heavily from his head.

A trail of blood led out to the SUV parked in the driveway, according to affidavits filed in the case.

Responding deputies administered first aid, including CPR, but Williams' condition worsened. He was transported to Fauquier Hospital, where he died soon after arriving, Hartman said.

Preliminary autopsy results indicated Williams died from an apparent gunshot wound, Hartman said.

The autopsy was performed at the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Manassas. An official cause and manner of death will not be available until the autopsy report is complete, Hartman said. 

Deputies obtained warrants to search the home, an SUV outside the home and Williams' cellphone, according to affidavits.

Original report: A Nokesville man has been arrested in connection with the fatal shooting late Monday of an 18-year-old Warrenton man, according to the Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office.

Lincoln Williams Jr., 18, was shot in the face late Monday, Aug. 26, outside his home on Old Auburn Road in Warrenton. He died from his wounds shortly afterward at Fauquier Hospital, according to Sgt. James Hartman, a Fauquier County Sheriff's Office spokesman.

Daniel Martin Farmer II, 23, of Nokesville, has been charged with first-degree murder in connection with Williams' death. Farmer was arrested during a traffic stop on Va. 28 near Dumfries Road about 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 28, Hartman said.

The suspect was identified early in the investigation. Law-enforcement officials sought a warrant for first-degree murder Wednesday night. Fauquier Sheriff’s Office detectives worked with the FBI Safe Streets Taskforce and Prince William County police to make the arrest, Hartman said.

An autopsy was performed at the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Manassas. An official cause and manner of death will not be available until the autopsy report is complete, Hartman said. 

Deputies obtained warrants to search the home, an SUV outside the home and Williams' cellphone, according to affidavits.

Williams “was the target of this shooting and the shooting occurred at and was isolated to the residence [where he was found] on Old Auburn Road,” Hartman said.

Charles Porterfield, Kettle Run High School's head football coach, said Lincoln Williams played on the school's junior varsity team in 2016. 

“The Kettle Run community is heartbroken by the news of Lincoln's passing. Our hearts are with the Williams family in their time of sorrow.  Lincoln was a stupendous football player and a marvelous person to be around. He possessed a magnetic personality, which naturally drew people to him," Porterfield said. "...We will always remember the joyous memories that we are privileged to have in knowing Lincoln.” 

Counseling has been available to Kettle Run students and will continue to be, Kettle Run High School Principal Meaghan Brill said.

"We are saddened to learn of Lincoln’s passing and are here to support both our students and his family," Brill said.

Anyone with further information about the shooting is asked to contact the Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office at 540-347-3300. A caller’s identity may remain anonymous.
