Three More Held in Virginia Police Officer's Death

HENRICO, Va. -- Three people are being held in the Henrico County Jail today on Virginia State Police charges in connection with the death of Waynesboro police reservist Kevin Wayne Quick.

Corinne Geller, a state police spokeswoman, said the three became persons of interest as the investigation progressed Thursday.

"Those three were taken into custody late Thursday night and are being held at Henrico County Jail each on a charge of principal in the 2nd degree to the crime of murder," said Geller.

"This means these individuals are not being charged with Quick's homicide but in association with his death," she said.

Halisi Uhuru, 22, of Danville; Leslie Hope Casterlow, 49, of Manassas; and Anthony Darnell Stokes Jr., 31, also of Manassas, were brought into the Henrico Jail on state police charges originating in Goochland County, said Henrico sheriff Mike Wade. He said Goochland prisoners are routinely held in Henrico.

The three are to be arraigned Monday in Goochland General District Court.

A body believed to be that of Quick was discovered in Goochland County near the Fluvanna line Thursday. Authorities have scheduled a news conference for 4 p.m. in Waynesboro.

The arrests are in addition to three others announced earlier in the case.

On Tuesday, three Albemarle County siblings were arrested in a hotel in Alexandria.

Mersadies Shelton, 20, and her brother, Daniel Mathis, 18, are charged with felony grand larceny of Quick's Toyota 4Runner. Shantai Shelton, 24, was taken into custody on an unrelated warrant issued by the Louisa Sheriff's Office.
