GRAND JURY INDICTS 3 DEFENDANTS ON FIRST-DEGREE MURDER CHARGES IN VSO CASES

Three defendants in three separate Volusia Sheriff’s Office cases were indicted by a grand jury this week, each on first-degree murder charges.

Two of the three defendants were already in custody on murder charges:

Michael Harris Jr. (DOB 7/20/2000), arrested Jan. 23 on charge of second-degree murder in the killing of Bobby Scott.

Damian DeRousha (DOB 1/9/1978), arrested Feb. 4 on a charge of first-degree murder in the killing of Donald Geno at the Volusia County fleet maintenance facility.

The third defendant indicted was Lee Ardis Wiley II (DOB 11/23/1976) on a charge of first-degree murder in the overdose death of Michael Ordway in April 2019. The grand jury found Wiley distributed the fentanyl that caused Ordway’s death.

At the time of this week’s indictment, Wiley was already in custody at the Volusia County Branch Jail on Sheriff’s Office drug charges involving possession and/or distribution of fentanyl, heroin and methamphetamine.
