Fourth man charged in Brian Betts killing extradited to Md.

Joel Johnson, the fourth man charged with the killing of D.C. principal Brian Betts, was extradited from the District to Montgomery County on Monday.

Johnson, 19, of an unknown D.C. address has been charged with first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit first-degree murder, and of armed robbery.

Johnson is being held without bond at the Montgomery County Detention Center; his next court appearance is scheduled for June 18.

Like the three others charged in the killing, Johnson was linked to the crime because of transactions involving Betts's stolen credit cards after the 42-year-old educator was slain, police said. The transactions linking the cards to Johnson were made April 15, the day Betts's body was found.

Another useless piece of debris let out onto the streets. 3 and done should be the motto. But DC is a far left criminal sanctuary where you cant even get Life without parole. This city and its council and judges are far left wackos who are more concerned with criminal rights than victims rights. No wonder DC is a sewer.

They all bragged about killing a homosexual. I hope they enjoy their incarceration, being the "property" of another inmate.
