Third man charged with murder for death of Isiah Agyekum

A year-and-a-half after Isiah Agyekum’s murder, police have arrested and charged Marquese Murray, 24, as the third person allegedly responsible for Agyekum’s death.

Murray is currently being held without bond while he faces first-degree-murder while armed charges.

Agyekum was killed back in July 2015 after police found him shot and suffering from gun wounds on 100 block of Darrington St., SW. Agyekum was brought to the hospital where he later died.

Murray is the third person to be charged with Agyekum’s death. Turell Campbell, 23, and Marquete Murray, 23, both face first-degree murder while armed charges. Currently, Campbell and Murray are being held without bond.
All three suspects are expected in court Feb. 7 for a preliminary hearing.
