TOONE — A sixth person has been indicted in a 2016 double homicide in Toone as the result of an ongoing investigation by Special Agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and the Hardeman County Sheriff’s Office.
On Monday, the Hardeman County grand jury returned indictments charging Nakera LaShawn “Keith” Hamer, 44, with various counts, including first-degree murder. The indictments stem from the investigation into the homicides of Joe Robertson, 38, and his 13-year-old son Jarvarrie Robertson. The two were found shot to death at their Naylor Road home on October 21, 2016.
At the request of former 25th District Attorney General Mike Dunavant and current DAG Mark Davidson, TBI Special Agents joined the investigation that, in 2016 and 2017, resulted in the arrest and indictments of five individuals: Andrian Bullock, Damein Hamer, Jeremy Hamer, Marquenton Williams, and Erica Beard. Each of their cases are at various stages of the judicial process. As this has remained an active and ongoing investigation, Agents developed additional information that identified Nakera Hamer as another individual responsible for the crimes.
On Wednesday, May 6, Nakera Hamer, who is currently incarcerated in Georgia on unrelated federal narcotics offenses, was officially served arrest warrants charging him with one count of especially aggravated burglary, one count of especially aggravated robbery, and two counts of first-degree murder. He is now awaiting extradition back to Hardeman County to be formally charged.
