A Jefferson, Md., man will remain held without bond after he was indicted earlier this month on murder charges.
Antonio Cane Arana is accused of killing a Hagerstown man in the city’s West End.
Washington County Circuit Court Judge Brett Wilson said during a hearing Tuesday that he believed the charges against Arana, 19, were too severe to consider setting a bond.
“This event is a very serious matter,” Wilson said. “We know that a man is dead.”
Arana is charged in an indictment with first-degree murder, second-degree murder and 15 other counts in connection with the shooting death of 27-year-old Christopher Turner.
Hagerstown police allege that on Jan. 20, Arana fired the shots that killed Turner inside an apartment at 1021 W. Washington St.
Turner’s family reported him missing on Jan. 23. His vehicle was found the next day in the city’s West End.
Police said Turner’s body was dumped in a wooded area near Gerrardstown, W.Va., where a resident of the Round Top Estates subdivision found it on Jan. 30.
Turner’s body was taken to Charleston, W.Va., for an autopsy.
Officer Heather Aleshire, a spokeswoman for the Hagerstown Police Department, said the autopsy confirmed that Turner was shot, but the official cause of death had not been determined.
Arana was extradited to Washington County after he was arrested Sunday morning in Frederick, Md.
Erica Shatiena Earl, 21, and Dakota Daniel Paugh, 19, both of Hagerstown, also are charged with first-degree murder and second-degree murder in connection with Turner’s death.
Police said Paugh was arrested Sunday in Washington, D.C., and Earl was arrested Friday in Jacksonville, Fla.
They are awaiting extradition to Washington County.
