GOOCHLAND COUNTY, Va. (WRIC)—Three people have been charged with capital murder in connection with the disappearance of Waynesboro Police Captain Kevin Quick.
According to the Henrico County Sheriff's Office, the three suspects were booked early Friday morning: 22-year-old Halisi Uhuru of Danville was booked at 2:36 a.m., 31-year-old Anthony Darnell Stokes Jr. of Manassas was booked at 3:17 a.m. and 49-year-old Leslie Hope Casterlow was booked at 3:45 a.m.
All three have been charged with Capital Murder in Commisson of Abduction – Principle in the Second Degree in connection with Quick's disappearance and are being held without bond at Henrico County Jail West.
The Goochland County Commonwealth's Attorney told ABC 8 News Reporter Parker Slaybaugh that Casterlow, Stokes and Uhuru are not directly responsible for murdering Quick; the principle in the second degree charge indicates they shared the same intent as the killer.
Uhuru is also known to use the name Girt Wright.
Though Quick's brother Glenn told ABC 8 News he believes the body found along Old Columbia Road in Goochland County on Thursday is that of the missing captain, Virginia State Police say that as of 11 a.m. Friday, the Office of the Medical Examiner is still in the process of positively identifying the body.
Earlier this week three siblings, Daniel Mathis, Mersadies Shelton and Shantai Shelton, were arrested in the City of Alexandria in connection with the case. The three are being held in Central Virginia Regional Jail in Orange and are due back in court on Tuesday, March 18.
