Two men charged with killing woman outside prayer meeting
Two men have been charged with the murder of a woman who was killed by bullets intended for someone else.
Prosecutors allege that James Knowles, 30, and Jarado Marshall, 18, were shooting at two other men on January 18 when 60-year-old Claudette Capron was caught in the crossfire.
Capron was on her way to a prayer meeting when she was struck in the chest and face.
Knowles and Marshall are charged with Capron’s murder and the attempted murders of their intended targets Antwan Adderley, who was also shot, and Emilio Ramsey.
They’re also accused of the armed robbery of Kendra Ramsey. She was robbed of a 2011 Honda Fit at gunpoint.
Marshall alone is accused of receiving the stolen vehicle.
Knowles and Marshall were not required to enter pleas to the charges when they appeared before Magistrate Samuel Mckinney on Monday.
They were denied bail and return to court on March 25.
