UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (WUSA) - Two men were indicted Thursday for their role in the August 20 death of police officer Adrian Morris, according to Prince George's County State's Attorney Angela Alsobrooks and Police Chief Mark Magaw.
Kevon Neal has been charged with motor vehicle manslaughter, fleeing and eluding police and theft greater than $10,000. He faces a maximum of 35 years if convicted.
Kenneth Mitchell has been charged with theft greater than $10,000. If convicted, he faces 15
The indictments stem from the incident in which Morris was pursuing the car that Neal and Mitchell were in after they had been identified as suspects who had stolen a purse at a gas station. Authorities later learned that the two had stolen other purses at multiple gas stations, and were driving in a stolen vehicle.
Neal remains on a no bond status at the Prince George's County Department of Corrections. Mitchell is being held in the District of Columbia on a charge of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle in relation to the stolen vehicle in this case. He has also been placed on a no bond status.
