Three people have been charged in connection with the homicide of Christopher Turner, a 27-year-old Hagerstown man whose body was found last month in Berkeley County, W.Va.
Hagerstown police said in a news release that Dakota Daniel Paugh, 19, and Erica Shatiena Earl, 21, both of Hagerstown, and Antonio Cane Arana, 19, of Jefferson, Md., are charged with first-degree murder and second-degree murder.
They also are charged with first-degree assault, second-degree assault, armed robbery, robbery and numerous firearms violations.
Police said Arana was arrested at 9 a.m. Sunday in Frederick, Md. He was being held without bond at the Washington County Detention Center.
Paugh was arrested Sunday morning in Washington, D.C., and Earl was arrested Friday afternoon in Jacksonville, Fla. They are awaiting extradition to Washington County.
Officer Heather Aleshire, spokeswoman for the Hagerstown Police Department, said Monday that Turner’s family filed a missing person report on Jan. 23.
His vehicle was found a day later in the city’s West End.
Aleshire said investigators believe Turner was shot to death on Jan. 20 inside an apartment at 1021 W. Washington St.
Turner was then taken to a wooded area near Gerrardstown, W.Va., where his body was found Jan. 30 by a resident of the Round Top Estates subdivision.
An autopsy was done at the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Charleston, W.Va.
Aleshire said the autopsy confirmed Turner was shot, but the official cause of death has not been determined at this point.
Aleshire said the arrests were made with the help of the U.S. Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force, the Jacksonville (Fla.) Sheriff’s Office, the Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia, the Westminster Police Department, the Montgomery County (Md.) Sheriff’s Office, Maryland State Police, the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office, the Frederick Police Department and the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.
