Men indicted on charges from chase that killed officer
Question of the Day
Two men riding in a stolen car that led a pair of Prince George’s County police officers on a fatal car chase on Interstate 95 were indicted Thursday on criminal charges, authorities said.
Kevon Darnell Neal, 23, the suspected driver of the fleeing vehicle, was charged with motor vehicle manslaughter, fleeing and eluding police, and theft greater than $10,000, according to the Prince George’s County State’s Attorney’s Office. Kenneth C. Mitchell, 24, was charged with theft greater than $10,000.
The two were in a stolen Acura TL on Aug. 20 that led a police cruiser on a chase that ended with the cruiser crashing on the side of the interstate. The crash killed driver Officer Adrian Morris, 23, and injured passenger Officer Michael Risher, 24. The officers began pursuing the vehicle after the men were identified as the people who had earlier stolen a purse at a local gas station.
Previously, Mr. Neal was facing charges of theft between $10,000 and $100,000 and being rogue and vagabond. Mr. Mitchell was being held without bond for a parole violation, but had not been charged.
Mr. Neal of Fort Washington is now facing a maximum of 35 years in prison if convicted. Mr. Mitchell of the District is facing 15 years.
Both men are being held without bond.
