Muncie teen charged after 3 men found deadMarch 5, 2021
By The Associated Press
MUNCIE — A Muncie teenager was jailed early Thursday in connection with the shooting deaths of three Michigan men found in a Muncie apartment.
Chandler Willard Harris II, who turned 18 on Thursday, was being held without bond in the Delaware County Jail, The Star Press reported. He faced preliminary charges of murder and robbery, jail records indicated.
Muncie police on Feb. 19 found the bodies of three Detroit men — Adrian Demarlo George Jr., 30; Devonte Earl Hollis, 25, and Terence Thomas, 27 — in a unit at the Elgin Manor Apartments.
Another teenager who reported the shootings, 18-year-old Juniyah Yvette Simmons of Anderson, was arrested Feb. 20 and charged with obstruction of justice in the case. Jami Brown, a Muncie police investigator, wrote in an affidavit that Simmons “lied multiple times” with “repeated inconsistencies” in the information she provided to authorities.
Authorities also allege that after finding the victims’ bodies, Simmons “removed several items of evidence” and took them to Anderson. Those items, not specified in an affidavit, were apparently recovered when “a search warrant was executed in that jurisdiction,” Brown said.
It was not immediately clear if Harris and Simmons are connected to each other.
