Closure for now...

Working from investigative leads and with assistance from CrimeStoppers, on Wednesday detectives from the Major Crimes Unit obtained arrest warrants in the murder case from 314 Academy Drive that occurred March 23.

Detectives contacted one of the suspects, Kuante Stanley, early Wednesday morning, and he came to the police department where he was arrested without incident.

With aid from the US Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force, detectives located the second suspect, Montrell Washington, at the Baymont Inn on S. Memorial Drive in Greenville. GPD officers and US Marshals surrounded the hotel and Police Negotiators then contacted Washington. He surrendered to police at 3:15 pm Wednesday afternoon without incident.

Both men are being charged with 2 counts each of Murder, Armed Robbery, and Kidnapping.  Police believe a drug-related robbery was the motive for the killings of 29 year old Shakeyeta Woolard and her boyfriend, 27 year old Keri Kenlaw.  Both victims where shot with handguns in their home.

Suspects Washington and Stanley are being held without bond pending their first appearance in court.
