2 suspects in Theodore Dirt Pit murder enter plea

Devon Watson and Billy Southammavong

Devon Watson, 16, and Billy Southammavong, 17, were both in court Thursday facing murder charges in the recent stabbing death of 18-year-old Gaige Taylor.

Taylor was one of dozens of students at a fight at that Thedore dirt pit where students from MGM, Theodore and Alma Bryant were gathered for a fight that police saw was retaliatory.

Both suspects entered a plea of not guilty and the state recommended $80,000 bond, which was granted.

There was a revelation that another fight was planned for this coming weekend which the judge called “extremely immature.”
