A defendant in a felony murder case, in which police believe an attempted drug deal led to a man’s death, filed motions to exclude the word “victim” and the photographs of the deceased. Leshan Tremiele Tanner and Rodnie Maurice Stokes, 27, were indicted Sept. 23 in the death of Cedric Antonio Huff. Gainesville Police believe Huff’s death on June 21, 2014, was related to an attempt to buy drugs on June 5, 2014.
