2nd suspect denied bond in Detroit drive-by that killed girl, 7


Detroit – A 22-year-old man is charged with first degree murder in a drive-by shoot in Detroit that killed 7-year-old Reginae Williams.

This means that both suspects of the murder are now in jail.

On October 28, just after 8:20 p.m., Williams was sitting on a couch in her home on Bedford’s 3900 block, police said when bullets came through the front window. That’s on the east side of Detroit, north of Mack and west of East Outer Drive.

Christion Mitchell-Childress, 22, is charged with first degree murder, unloading firearms in a fatal building, and unloading firearms from a fatal vehicle.

He was arrested in Dallas last month before being shipped back to Detroit.

Mitchell-Childress was tried in Detroit’s 36th District Court on Wednesday by Magistrate Jeffrey Kleparek for denying him the loan.

He will appear in court on December 18 for his conference on probable reasons and on December 23 for preliminary examination, both in front of Judge Ronald Giles of the 36th District Court.

Last month, Wayne County Attorney Kym Worthy accused Mitchell-Childress’s alleged accomplice in the shooting, Emmett Williams Jr., 20, of first degree murder, three firearm cases, dismissal in a building that caused death and being discharged from a vehicle causes death.
