Suspect in killing of D.C. cop turns self in
Expected in court Wednesday afternoon
A man accused of gunning down his stepfather, a D.C. police detective, after a dispute over yard work turned himself in to Prince George’s County police late Tuesday, ending a manhunt that had fanned out around the region.
Antwan Rayvon James, 27, a former D.C. firefighter, is charged with killing Detective Joseph B. Newell, 46, outside their Upper Marlboro home Monday evening.
After an intense search, Mr. James surrendered to authorities and was charged with first-degree murder. He was being held without bond at the Prince George’s County Department of Corrections and was expected to appear for a bond review in Prince George’s County District Court on Wednesday afternoon.
Investigators said Mr. James fatally shot Detective Newell after his mother yelled at him about helping his stepfather with yard work.
The 23-year department veteran was standing on a stepladder in front of the home, trying to screw in a light bulb above his garage, when his stepson came outside and shot him in the back, Prince George’s County Assistant Police Chief Kevin Davis said.
After Detective Newell was shot, he toppled to the ground and his stepson stood over him and fired several more rounds, Chief Davis said.
“It was an execution,” Chief Davis said.
A surveillance camera caught the entire incident on video, according to police.
