A third suspect in the killing of a Greenbriar Trail man was arrested Wednesday evening.

Terrance Ray Griswould, 28, of Augusta, was charged with murder, Statesboro Public Safety Director Wendell Turner said.

Griswould is the third suspect in custody in connection with the June 30 shooting death of Michael Anthony Riley, 51, of Greenbriar Trail. Statesboro police first arrested Riley's wife, Antoinette Braddy Riley, 48, of Greenbriar Trail, on July 1; and arrested inmate Tarell Momom, 34, incarcerated at Dooly State Prison in Unadilla since 1996, on July 3.

All three are charged with murder.

Statesboro police Detective Kevin Wadley and Detective Sgt. James Winskey, with assistance by the U.S. Marshals Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force and Richmond County Sheriff's Office arrested Griswould in Augusta on Wednesday, Turner said. Griswould is currently being held at the Bulloch County Jail without bond awaiting further court action.

Momom and Antoinette Riley are also being held without bond in the Bulloch County Jail.

"The details of Griswould's involvement are not being released at this time as the case remains under investigation," Turner said.

Michael Riley was found dead in his home June 30, and his wife was arrested the next day. Police have not released details of any suspects' involvement in the murder.

Momom was convicted in August 1996 for a July 1995 incident in Newton County. He was convicted on several charges of terroristic threats and acts, aggravated assault, aggravated sodomy, as well as charges of cruelty to children, armed robbery, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

He is currently serving a 20-year sentence for those convictions. Police would not explain Momom's involvement, citing an ongoing investigation.
