Marquise Griffin: Belleville Homicide No. 2; 15-Year-Old Shot in Head
On Monday the Major Case Squad was brought into investigate the killing and police equipped with armored vehicles raided a nearby home where they reportedly took another 15-year-old male into custody. The Belleville News-Democrat reports that charges could come as early as today or tomorrow.
Griffin's murder occurred just a couple blocks away from where 18-year-old Jarrell Fountain was stabbed to death in May. Two teenage brothers from Belleville -- Floyd E. Alexander, 19, and Michael P. Alexander, 17, have been charged with that murder and remain in jail.
