WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Four suspects charged with the murder of a Cape Fear Community College student will have to wait a little while longer to have their day in court.

According to the New Hanover County District Attorney’s Office the cases of Christopher Daniel Cromartie Jr., 23, Daniel Edward Henry, 17, Jasmine Nikole Dottin, 19, and Quintel Grady, 22, have been continued. All the cases are headed to a grand jury.

The four suspects are charged with felony first-degree murder, robbery with a dangerous weapon, attempted burglary and conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon in connection with the murder of Joshua Proutey in December. Dottin also had an outstanding misdemeanor warrant for failing to appear on an unspecified charge.

Cromartie, Dottin and Grady are all being held without bond and could face the death penalty. Because Henry is a minor, he is being held under a $2 million bond and faces a maximum of life without parole.

    To all of you saying they deserve forgiveness, how about my innocent friend, Josh Proutey, that I’ll never be able to see or talk to for the rest of my life? Yeah, send them to prison for life.

    Everybody is saying so many hateful things. I wonder how you would feel if one of these young men were your son, or this you lady your daughter. I know what they did was wrong but we are not acting no better than they did when we say such hateful things. I am so Grateful the God doesn’t judge like the world those. Remember He still loves them. No sin is no greater than the other. The one’s we have commited by the world terms may not have been as bad as this one but in God’s eyes they are all the same. Jesus did on the cross for all of us not just one’s that think they are living right. We all fall short of the glory of God at times. The good news is all we have to do is repent and he will look upon it know more. They all still have a chance at eternal life just like each and everyone of us.

    If this would have been four white, thug, monsters, slaughtering a innocent, hard-working, young, black, man, then taking his sandwich, and buying gas, with his mere $10, YOU would be marching ,throughout the country, in a ‘Million Hoodie March’, waving your fist, and demanding more “Hate-Crimes Laws”.

    Where is Jesse Jackson, and all the ‘Diversity’ people, on this one ? As always, Dead Silence. Sure, Jesus wants us to love everyone, and we must. But Jesus demands we stand against evil.

    Yes Its Sad that the Boy got Killed by suppose to be thugs but at the same time nobody goes in when The White Men go killing Innocent children in schools at least those thugs dont go into schools and Big Populated area killing lots…..PPL have their faults but dont badger one especially when your not suppose to judge anyone….sending them to jail is just a form of judging and they are still alive so ppl get ya minds right…And Yes I am a Hispanic so dont try to judge

  • Squabadoo

    This is no God in these kids. At least the one that pulled the trigger. As a realist and passive American who believes in justice, give Grady the death penalty and the others life in jail. This country has become too sensitive to the darkness of criminal actiivity. That poor kid died for no reason what so ever! Don’t bring religion or any spirituality to guide a sense of forgiveness. 1. It’s too soon for forgiveness 2. There may be a God out there, but this actually took place. Think about it

    “They all still have a chance at eternal life just like each and everyone of us.” – no name

    That’s fine but their time here should end…. They have proven they do not deserve to walk among the living decent people and it should be society’s job to remove them from the gene pool…. and no I do not want to feed and water them for the rest of their sorry lives.

    Seriously after all that is happen all you can think and say is ask for god to forgive these thugs. I don’t think so. yes they are someones son’s and daughter but so was Josh. he was a son too and now she has doesn’t have her son around anymore because of these thugs.

    They have no remorse for what they did, look at their mugs shots they are nothing but criminals. They went seeking for trouble, they even went after someone else and that other person realized they were being followed so the four thugs were up to no good the whole night. Josh happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. They went up to Josh seeking trouble and it was all over a sub and 10 bucks that is it and now an innocent amazing life is gone.

    Obliviously if their parents / guardian carded about them they would have known where their (thugs) of teenagers were. They were out the whole night looking for nothing but trouble. Josh who was dedicated to his community and working an event at the art center.

    So no there is not asking god for forgiveness in this case. This was a cold blooded murder that never should have happened but now these low life thugs deserve justice and the most painful justice ever. Maybe make the cry and beg for their life like Josh did.

    If there was a God, he would not consider stealing a sandwich and murder equal.

    “Young men” and “young ladies” do not go around murdering innocent people after stealing sandwiches and a few dollars. These 4 are nothing but savage animals who have no place in society. Yes, it would be interesting to see what their “parents” have to say. Interestingly, none of their “parents” have yet to come forward with any kind of statement, let alone an apology to the victim’s family. My guess is these 4 came from a long lineage of societal derelicts just like their own selves.

  • windy

    “Repenting” is not going to save these criminals!! Committing armed robbery and murder, among a multitude of unrelated past crimes, have bought these 4 a one-way ticket to the fiery underground where they belong.

  • windy

    These animals do not deserve forgiveness. What they did is unforgiveable.


    Do you demand that ALL murderers receive “forgivesness” or do you only say that when the victim is White?
    The murderers said they were “looking for a White person.”
    When Joshua Proutey is murdered the media says “wrong place, wrong time.”
    When Trayvon is killed they say “hate crime.”
    Violence comes in the later stages of genocide. These four had been told to target White people because “only White people have money.” This is a systematic targeting which is part and parcel to the program of genocide targeting all White countries and only White countries with open immigration, forced integration, and “assimilation.”
    It’s White genocide.
    The media claims to be “anti-racist.” What they are is anti-White.
    Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.

    Saying something hateful is nothing like killing someone in cold blood. You already know that, but if you say it, then you’ll have to admit to yourself how horrible these murderers actually are.

    Nowhere in the Bible does it say that all sins are equal. You already know that, but if you say it, then you’ll have to admit to yourself how horrible their crime actually was.

    You’re making up excuses because you feel ashamed of the way some (but not all) of the members of your community are acting. You should feel ashamed.

    Stop wasting time on excuses and start taking action in your community to put a stop to the actions of a small minority of thugs and wanna-be gangstas that are getting all the headlines. Put more pressure on some (but not all) of the parents of these wanna-be’s in your community to stress the advantages of education and real parenting rather than just letting them just do whatever.

    More effort on the front end always results in less excuses coming out on the back end. Of course, you could just continue to do nothing until the next murder occurs. Then you could just post another excuse and misquote a little bit more of the Bible to fool yourself into thinking you shouldn’t feel ashamed about having done nothing in the first place.

    There parents love them the same as yours love you.Now are they happy with what they did of course not.And will they be forgiven for what they did sure they will.Can they turn there lives around sure they can.To you and others they are low lifes but what you and others think of them don’t mean a hill of beans.Killing that young man was one of the worst things they could have done.Should they be sentence to whatever is decided of course.Your life ain’t squeaky clean and i did say ain’t.

    Just to be on the safe side, I Googled the Ten Commandments. Yup, right there under #6 “Thou Shalt Not Kill”. Interestingly enough, I looked through the commandments several more times…and still couldn’t find the one that said; “Thou Shalt Not Talk Junk About Killers…or anything close to that.

    It’s only a guess but I don’t see these “sins” as being equal and I doubt He thinks too highly of one of his flock killing another for a cell phone, a sandwich and a little gas money.
