The suspect of a high-speed chase in the Mayport area that resulted in the death of an 84-year-old church deacon now faces a murder charge.
Court records show that Lawrence J. Hall, 26, is being charged with murder. He reportedly kidnapped Louis Reese and led police on a high-speed chase after he allegedly robbed a Mayport-area internet cafe on Jan. 2.
The pursuit ended on Atlantic Boulevard and landed four people -- Reese, Hall and two Jacksonville Sheriff's officers -- in the hospital.
Reese was listed in critical condition, but he later died about a week after the incident. Hall was also listed in critical condition.
Earlier, Hall was charged with attempted murder of a Jacksonville Sheriff's Officer. Both officers are expected to be ok.
If Hall is released from the hospital, his next court date is scheduled for Jan. 24 at 9 a.m.
