A 16-year-old accused of fatally shooting a 5-year-old boy, the boy’s mother, and her boyfriend in their Detroit home has been charged with felony murder, the prosecutor’s office announced.
A second teenager was also arrested but charges were not filed due to “insufficient evidence,” according to Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy.
Five-year-old Caleb Harris, his mother, LaShon Marshall, 28, and her boyfriend, Aaron Benson, 32, were found dead Sunday evening in a home on Evergreen Road.
The prosecutor’s office said Benson’s cousin went to the home after not hearing from him for several days and discovered the bodies. All three victims had been shot multiple times.
The two teenagers were arrested Monday following tips from the community, police said. Worthy identified the 16-year-old as Malcolm Ray Hardy.
