“D.C. Man Charged for Fatally Shooting His Son’s Alleged Killer”

From The Washington Post: D.C. Man Charged for Fatally Shooting His Son’s Alleged Killer:

The father of a 4-year-old boy who was shot to death in October was arrested yesterday and charged with killing the man believed responsible for the earlier death, D.C. police announced in a news conference.

Raymond Carpenter’s lifeless body was found Nov. 17 in the 3100 block of Buena Vista Terrace SE. He had been shot several times. Police said detectives believe Carpenter shot Darias Branch, 4, and his mother Turkessa Branch, in their apartment three weeks earlier. But they did not have enough evidence to charge Carpenter in the case.

This morning, police said they had arrested Darias’s father, Darias McKeever, and charged him in the slaying of Carpenter. McKeever is expected in court today.
