MARTINSBURG, W.VA. - The second of three men wanted in the October 2005 slaying of Martinsburg resident Donald L. "Dee" Redman was arraigned Friday.
John James Grant, aka "Butter," 21, of New York, was placed in the custody of the Martinsburg Police Department Thursday, exactly nine months after Redman, 29, was found dead on the porch of a Third Street residence, according to Berkeley County Magistrate Court records.
Grant is charged with murder. Police allege he shot Redman once in the head behind an apartment at 517 N. Third St. on Oct. 27, according to records.
Grant was being held without bond Friday at the Eastern Regional Jail after exhausting his rights to fight extradition from New York, where he was arrested in February on marijuana possession charges, police and court officials said.
