Shelton Sisters Arraigned on New Charges

Posted: Updated:

LOUISA COUNTY, Va. (WRIC)—Two Albemarle County sisters, one of whom faces charges in connection with the death and disappearance of Waynesboro reserve police Captain Kevin Quick, were charged in Louisa County court Tuesday morning.

Shantai Shelton and her sister, Mersadies, were arrested last week along with their brother, Daniel Mathis. Virginia State Police charged Mathis and Mersadies Shelton with felony grand larceny for stealing Quick's 1999 Toyota 4Runner; Shantai Shelton was arrested on an unrelated charge.

Shantai Shelton was living with a man named David Sharpe, who resides on the 15000 block of Hopeful Church Road in Bumpass. In October 2013, she allegedly poisoned him by giving him three glasses of milk laced with SEROQUEL XR, a drug prescribed to treat bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. She is also accused of taking his wallet, gun and credit cards.

Shantai Shelton was charged with poisoning with intent to kill or injure. Following her court appearance on Feb. 11, she is now being held without bond on four charges relating to this incident. The Commonwealth's Attorney argued that she is a flight risk, as evidence suggests she was trying to avoid arrest by traveling to Alexandria with people sources say are known members of the Bloods gang. He also said she had plans to travel to Montana, where she has ties.

Mersadies Shelton is facing charges of being a principal in the second degree to the crimes of malicious wounding and use of firearm during the commission of a felony. On Super Bowl Sunday, Shelton and Mathis were involved in the malicious wounding of a family at their own home; they later fled to Alexandria.
