3 Charged In Clarksville Home Invasion Murder
CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Three men have been charged in a deadly home invasion in Clarksville last summer.
Clarksville Police arrested 23-year-old Curtis O'Neil Shelton Jr., 26-year-old Joseph Graham, and 18-year-old Kentavius Cheeks on criminal homicide charges.
Police believe the trio was involved in the shooting death of Miles B. Hendrick on July 21, 2013 at a home on Ranch Hill Drive.
Investigators with the Clarksville Police Department said three male suspects wearing hooded sweatshirts and bandanas forced their way into the home.
One of the suspects was armed with a 9mm handgun. Another had a tire iron.
Witnesses told police the suspects demanded drugs and money and tied up the victims before going through the house, searching for money and electronics.
Several victims freed themselves and some kind of struggle ensued. One of the suspects suffered blunt force injuries to his head, face and back.
When the suspect called for help, the other two men came into the room. One of them shot and killed Hendrick.
Police said the incident was not a random crime. They believe a fourth female suspect led the others to the specific residence.
Hendrick was from Morgantown, Kentucky, and visiting friends who lived at the home.
All three men were held without bond at the Montgomery County Jail.
