Judge Karen Howze found probable cause Wednesday that Jermaine Livingston participated in the 2011 shooting death of 34-year-old Antwain Henderson. Livingston, 41, was arrested Tuesday morning and remains held pending a preliminary hearing next week.
Livingston is the fourth suspect to be arrested in connection with Henderson’s death.
Henderson’s body was found inside a burning vehicle in the 800 block of Balsamtree Place, Capitol Heights, Md, in the early morning hours of August 31, 2011. Police later determined that he had been shot and killed in the 5800 block of Field Place in Northeast D.C.
Arrest documents say witnesses told detectives that Anthony Campbell shot and killed Henderson because he was angry that Henderson told people that Campbell was an informant on a charge Henderson was convicted of in 2003.
According to witnesses, Henderson and Campbell were having an argument outside Campbell’s mother’s house in Northeast D.C. around 1:30 a.m. Aug. 31 when Campbell pulled a gun from his waistband and shot Henderson in the head. Arrest documents say that when police responded to the sound of gunshots near Campbell’s home, Livingston and Campbell dragged Henderson’s body to the basement, where it stayed for at least an hour, before being tossed in the trunk of Henderson’s vehicle.
Witnesses say that Phillip Glover then assisted Campbell in towing Henderson’s car to Maryland where it was set on fire.
Documents say that in 2012, while incarcerated in Prince George’s County, Livingston spoke with detectives and told them that he was inside Campbell’s residence in the 5800 block of Field Place the morning of the shooting, but did not have knowledge of Henderson’s murder.
Judge Howze scheduled a preliminary hearing for May 24.
