GOOCHLAND, VA (WWBT) -
Three suspects are behind bars in Henrico charged in connection with the murder of Waynesboro Police reserve Captain Kevin Quick, according to court documents.
Halisi Uhuru, Leslie Hope Casterlow and Anthony Darnell Stokes face a charge of principal in the 2nd degree to the crime of murder in the death of Quick, according to arrest warrants filed in Goochland. Legal experts say the charge means the suspects are accused of being involved in the death, but did not kill Quick. State Police officials say none of the suspects are accused of murdering Quick.
The arrest warrants say the three charges stem from the abduction and murder between Monday and Wednesday. Uhuru is from Danville. Leslie Casterlow and Stokes are from Manassas.
They're due back in court on February 10 at 12:30 p.m. State Police have scheduled a press conference at 4 p.m. in Waynesboro.
The Goochland arrests came early Friday and bring the total number of people behind bars to six in connection with the disappearance and murder of the Virginia officer.
Quick went missing one week ago. Virginia State police confirm a body was found Thursday afternoon in a remote area along on the Fluvanna and Goochland county line. Law enforcement sources say the body was found on Old Columbia Road and had been shot.
While law enforcement sources say the body is Quick, State Police officials say they are still working on identifying the body and gathering evidence. They say they will release the name once they have finished identifying the body and notifying next of kin.
A judge ordered Daniel Mathis, Shantai Shelton, and Mersadies Shelton held without bond. They were also given court appointed defense attorneys.
The three Albemarle siblings were arrested at an Alexandria hotel Tuesday night. Mersadies Shelton and Daniel Mathis are charged with possession of stolen property/grand larceny for the theft of Quick's Silver 1999 Toyota 4Runner.
Investigators seized a wallet, a box of cigarettes with a green leafy substance and various other items from the SUV, according to search warrants.
Mathis was also arrested on four felony warrants and three misdemeanor warrants in connection with a shooting Sunday in Mineral. Authorities say Mathis drove the missing captain's SUV to a Louisa home Sunday night where he tried to rob a family and shot a teen.
Shantai Shelton was arrested on an unrelated warrant.
A search warrant shows Quick's last communication was two text messages sent to his girlfriend. His Verizon cell phone has been off since 10:52 p.m. Friday. His Discover card hasn't been used since 5:45 p.m. Friday.
Police say Quick left his mother's house in Afton Friday night to go see a woman,with whom he has a four-month-old daughter, 20 miles away at the Turtle Tree apartments in Albemarle. Quick has been legally separated from his wife since 2007, though the divorce was never finalized. However, Quick never made it to the Turtle Tree Apartments, which are less than two miles from where the suspects live, according to police.
Court documents also show Quick was laid off three weeks ago and his severance money hasn't been accounted for.
Quick's SUV was found on Cedar Hill Road in Louisa Monday, not far from where a shooting occurred Sunday night. Police ask anyone who may have noticed any strange cars in the area this weekend to call them with information.
State Police say the silver Toyota 4Runner was also seen in Fork Union Friday and Manassas Saturday.
State Police are also still looking for a man who they believe knows something about the captain's disappearance. They've distributed a surveillance image in the hopes it will lead to new information in the case.
Anyone with information is encouraged to call Virginia State Police at #77 on a cell phone or at (434) 352-7128, or any one of the assisting agencies.
