Two men have been arrested after the brutal murder of a resident named Anthony Billups. Cincinnati police found video footage during the investigation. the video footage shows a man being shot by two random criminals directly. both the criminals had a handgun in their hands. This incident took place in Northside Sunday. Both the man are behind bars and charged with the murder of Anthony Tulip.
Police received a call about a shooting early evening around 4 Pm. Police immediately responded and reached the crime scene. police investigated the murder’s location, and motive and also checked cameras nearby. police identified two accused who sprayed bullets using handguns.
Who are the accused murderers of Anthony Billups?
Both the accused are young and below the age of 25 . one of the victims who was the main conspirator was 25-year-old Darrius Wilson, and his co-conspirator and murderer was Deonte Wilson who is 22 years old. Both of them entered the Northside flat apartment buildings and they shot unarmed Anthony Billups. Billups was a 34-year-old man who lived in north college hill. The Hamilton County corner’s office confirmed the identity and age of the murder victim.
Wilsons are caught because of CCTV footage:
Paperwork filed in hamilton county municipal court that a homicide has been captured on a video and that some people have witnessed the direct attack by Wilsons. witness testimony will make it difficult for Wilson to come out so easily. there is a possibility both of them will spend all their lives in jail. we are looking at at least 40 years of jail time or more for both the suspects. Both of them are held at a $250000 bond.
Both the suspect was produced in court on Monday morning. the Municipal court has provided them with legal defenders to present their case. usually in such cases, the public defender wants the sentencing to be reduced so they ask the suspect to accept guilt if they are guilty. we are looking at many charges such as non-licensed arms, trespassing and fatally shooting a citizen.
Their lawyer might help them get two of the charges dropped but that does not mean any relief for the suspects because they might have to spend 40 or more years in jail if they are found guilty. the CCTV footage and the witnesses who are ready to testify in court make the case extremely strong.
Soon the trial will begin and we hope to see Wilsons making a guilty plea.
