2 more charged in connection with murder of 14-year-old girl
Two more people are charged in connection with the murder of a Chicago teen.
14-year old Endia Martin was shot to death earlier this week allegedly by another teen after the two got into a fight over a boy.
Vandetta Redwood, 32, is charged with mob action and obstruction of justice for failing to call police and denying she was at the scene, police said in a statement today.
Police say she did nothing to stop it and lied to police about where she was at the time of the murder.
Robert James, 34, is charged with felony disorderly conduct for allegedly filing a false police report, according to Cook County state’s attorney’s office spokeswoman Sally Daly. James was also charged with felony unlawful delivery of a firearm.
Police said James reported the gun stolen on April 13, but James had actually sold it to someone in November 2013 and then filed a false police report, officials said.
The .38-caliber handgun then somehow got into the hands of Donnell Flora, 25, the uncle of the girl charged with murdering Endia Martin.
Police superintendent Garry McCarthy says it’s an example of why the flow of guns needs to be curtailed.
