Michael Allen Russell turned himself in on Tuesday at around 7 p.m. after calling 911 from a McDonalds restaurant in The Plains.

He was wanted for robbery, a 2nd degree felony, and involuntary manslaughter, a 1st degree felony, for the homicide death of Charles Duncan Sr.

The Athens County Sheriff’s Office, Athens City Police Department and the Major Crimes Unit responded. Russell, 18 of Athens, was taken into custody without incident.

Duncan, 55, was fatally shot in his 221 West Washington St. apartment on Sunday. APD obtained a warrant for Russell’s arrest Tuesday afternoon.
