A Fort Washington man and a Washington, D.C., man have been indicted for their role in the death of Prince George’s County Police Officer Adrian Morris.
At a press conference Friday afternoon at Prince George’s County Courthouse in Upper Marlboro, Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Angela Alsobrooks and Prince George’s County Chief of Police Mark Magaw announced that Kevon Neal, 23, of Fort Washington, and Kenneth Mitchell, 25, of Northeast Washington, have been indicted.
Neal has been charged with motor vehicle manslaughter, fleeing and eluding police, and theft greater than $10,000. Mitchell has been charged with theft greater than $10,000. Neal is facing a maximum of 35 years if convicted, and Mitchell is facing 15 years if convicted.
Neal remains on a no-bond status at the Prince George’s County Department of Corrections. Mitchell is currently being held in the District of Columbia on a charge of unauthorized use of a mo- tor vehicle in relation to the stolen vehicle in this case. He has also been
placed on a no-bond status.
“Our hearts continue to go out to the family of Officer Morris,” Alsobrooks said. “I want his family and all the citizens of Prince George’s County to know that we will do all we can to ensure that jus- tice is served in this case, and today is the first step in that process.”
