Dayton man accused of trying to join ISIS in Syria

Man, girlfriend face new charges in Butler County shooting death


A Cincinnati man and his girlfriend, taken into custody last week for the fatal shooting in St. Clair Twp., were arraigned Thursday in Butler County Common Pleas Court on new charges.

Keith D. Harris Jr., 27, and Diamond Reid, 18, who were arrested as they left a Hamilton County motel, now both face murder charges for the death of Trey Shepard on April 8, according to the indictment handed down by a grand jury.

Previously, Reid was charged with obstruction of justice. In addition to murder, she is now charged with aggravated robbery and felonious assault.

Harris is additionally charged with aggravated robbery, felonious assault and having weapons under disability.

Both told Judge Keith Spaeth they could not afford an attorney, and one was appointed for them. Spaeth set Reid’s bond at $500,000 and $1.25 million for Harris.

Also, another Cincinnati man and his girlfriend who detectives arrested in California after a fatal shooting in St. Clair Twp. are in route to Ohio 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.

Thursday’s indictment also added aggravated robbery, felonious assault and having weapons under disability to the charges William Harris is facing.

His girlfriend Terrianoi Head, 23, of Cincinnati, is charged with obstruction of justice.

William and Keith Harris are not related, according to police.

The incident happened when an intruder entered an upper floor apartment of the Nelson Street residence and shot Shepard 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.
