A Cincinnati man and his girlfriend who detectives arrested in California after a fatal shooting in St. Clair Twp. will be back in Ohio soon to stand trial.
William D. Harris, 26, of Cincinnati, was arrested April 10 as he stepped off a bus in California with his girlfriend. Deputies issued a murder arrest warrant for Harris earlier this month along with a $5,000 reward for information leading to his whereabouts.
Harris and girlfriend Terrianoi Head, 23, of Cincinnati, who is charged with obstruction of justice, waived extradition at a court hearing last week in California and will be back in Butler County within a week, according to Butler County Sheriff’s Mag. Mike Craft.
Butler County Sheriff’s deputies arrested two more people a day later in connection with the shooting death of Trey Shepard on April 8 at his Nelson St. home.
Keith D. Harris Jr., 27, and Diamond Reid, 18, were taken into custody as they left a Hamilton County motel. Harris is charged with murder, and Reid, his girlfriend, is charged with obstruction of justice.
Reid and Keith Harris are scheduled to be in Hamilton Municipal Court today for a preliminary hearing. Bond was set at $50,000 for Reid and $1 million for Keith Harris.
William and Keith Harris are not related, according to police.
The incident happened when an intruder entered an upper floor apartment and shot a male resident during a reported exchange of gunfire.
In a 911 call, a woman who lived in the apartment downstairs said people had been banging on their doors and broke out the sliding glass doors.
“Someone is breaking into the house upstairs from me,” the woman, who was holding her baby, told dispatchers. “I hear banging. She (the woman in the upstairs apartment) is crying. She is asking for help.”
The woman said her neighbor cried out that someone was shot outside.
“They said someone is dying outside,” the woman says, begging officials to come quickly.
A woman with Shepard screams hysterically in the 911 call to dispatchers.
“Baby, where did you get shot at,” the woman cries out. “Listen I love you. Stay with me baby, Trey don’t go …”
At one point in the call, she indicates Shepard had been shot in the head.
