Third suspect charged with murder in Betts case
Montgomery County police Tuesday identified a third 18-year-old charged in the slaying of D.C. principal Brian Betts. Charging documents say the man admitted to being at Betts's home at the time he was killed.
The charging documents offer new details in the case: A car alarm activated as the suspects fled Betts’s house in the principal's SUV, at least one of the suspects stole items from the SUV, and at least one of them used a Betts credit card within two hours of his slaying.
The latest suspect, according to police, is Deontra Q. Gray, of the 1300 block of Southview Drive in Oxon Hill. Police charged him with murder, robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery.
According to charging documents, Gray "admitted that he was at Betts's residence at the time of the murder. Additionally, Gray admitted that after the murder, he took property from Betts's vehicle."
