On June 2, three weeks after the stabbing death of 30-year-old Antonio Lamar Washington at Alhamraa restaurant, authorities arrested 19-year-old Taneak Quvaughn Turner, who has been charged with seven felonies including first-degree murder and malicious wounding relating to the May 10 incident that occurred during a party at the Ix property establishment.

Turner was taken into custody in Spotsylvania County with assistance by U.S. Marshal’s Service and the Spotsylvania Sheriff’s Office. He will appear in Charlottesville District Court on the charges August 7.

One week after Washington’s death, 36-year-old Oscar Nathaniel Brown was shot and killed on the 800 block of Hardy Drive. Police are seeking 39-year-old Avery Fernando Gray in connection to Brown’s May 17 slaying. Police are also seeking Brittany Deshawna Alamo, 29, of Buckingham County in connection with Brown’s death. According to police, Alamo is wanted as an accessory after the fact in the homicide and for tampering with evidence. Police warn that Gray should be considered armed and dangerous.
