COLUMBIA — After making three arrests, Columbia police charged two teen males with first-degree murder in connection to the Tre'Veon Marshall shooting death on July 14 at McKee Park.
Columbia police Sgt. Joe Bernhard said the arrests were made late Wednesday night and Thursday morning. Bernhard identified the suspects as Joshua Dewayne Murray, 18, and Nicholas Raheem Thomas, 19. Kimberly Makayla Huett-Linzie, 17, was charged with hindering prosecution.
Murray was being held Thursday morning at the Boone County Jail on charges of first-degree murder and armed criminal action. He was arrested at 10:17 p.m. Wednesday in the 2200 block of Crestridge Drive, police said. His bond has been set at $1 million, cash only.
Thomas was arrested about 8:25 a.m. Thursday in the 400 block of Duncan Street and was charged with first-degree murder and armed criminal action. His bond was set at $2 million, cash only. As of 2 p.m. Thursday, Thomas was being held at the police station and was going to be moved to the jail.
Huett-Linzie, 17, was charged at 2:42 a.m. Thursday with hindering prosecution and was released on bond from the jail at 5:45 a.m., the Sheriff's Department said. She was arrested at the Columbia police station, but Bernhard could not confirm whether she had turned herself in.
Bernhard said Thursday afternoon that the investigation was continuing, and he would not comment on specific details. He said police had been looking into the three individuals since early on in the investigation but had not gathered sufficient evidence to make arrests until this week.
"(They) were able to develop to probable cause to say that these people were responsible or took some part in the homicide," Bernhard said. "It all came together this week that they had enough probable cause to feel like they could go out and arrest all these individuals."
He said the incident was not related to other shootings, and he did not have information about whether it was gang-related.
