Final suspect arrested in December slaying

The final suspect in the December fatal shooting of Henry Stokes turned himself over to authorities this morning.


The arrest of 23-year-old Dominique Demario Ellis comes a day after his alleged accomplice in the slaying, Marqueem Jermaine Mays, 25, was charged.

Richmond County Sheriff's Sgt. Calvin Chew said Ellis is charged with murder, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime and aggravated assault.

A third man, Bennie Lorenzo Bell, 22, was arrested earlier this month.

Stokes, 37, was found dead on Dec. 28 at a boarding house in the 1600 block of Cleveland Street. He had been shot at least once.
