Charges filed in weekend K10 shooting

January 12, 2009


Douglas County prosecutors charged three people Monday related to a weekend crime spree that included an alleged Lawrence robbery and shots fired at a vehicle near Eudora Saturday morning on Kansas Highway 10.

Christopher Lee Forbush-Willis, 21, Olathe, and Terrell Donnell Griffin, 23, Gardner, face charges of aggravated robbery, attempted aggravated robbery and criminal discharge of a firearm. Forbush-Willis also faces a charge of being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.

Lindsey Leigh Abram, 23, of Gardner, faces three charges for aiding and abetting the two suspects.

David Melton, a chief assistant Douglas County district attorney, said the suspects are accused of holding up two people early Saturday morning in the 1600 block of West Ninth Street. Eudora police apprehended the vehicle on Kansas Highway 10 after a man, who was not injured, reported someone fired shots at his vehicle.

All three suspects made their first appearances in court Monday afternoon. They are next scheduled to appear Wednesday afternoon before District Judge Michael Malone.

This is killing me: because of this quote: "You should keep teen drivers off the road," said fellow classmate Megan White from the backseat. "Especially her."

Actually, in that the driver in the linked story is the same person charged with driving the other two alleged criminals around, I thought it was very relevant.

Genuisman an appropriate name for sure, maybe in addition to standing in the corner you should also stay off the road.

Eotw33, Why don't you be a little more mature about posting, eh? There is a little thing called common courtesy.
