2 more suspects charged in death of 15-year-old Milwaukee boy Dennis King

MILWAUKEE -- Two more suspects have been charged in connection with the death of 15-year-old Dennis King.

Meakhi Autry-Terrell, 17, and Salena P. Terrell, 42, who are mother and son, both face charges of harboring or aiding a felon. They're accused of helping Malik Terrell, also a son of Salena's, get away with King's death. Malik was charged with homicide in King's death Tuesday.

According to a criminal complaint, Salena arranged for Malik to visit his father in Chicago after the crime. Meakhi is accused of trying to cover up the crime scene by cleaning up King's blood following his death.

Both face up to ten years in prison if convicted. Malik faces life in prison if convicted on his charge of first-degree intentional homicide.

King's body was found earlier this week after he was beaten, stabbed, and burned over the theft of a video game console, according to his family.

King was a freshman at James Madison High School. 

Monday evening, friends and family released balloons into the air and honored King at a vigil just steps away from where his body was found.

“He was at my house every day,” said Yolon Perry. 

She said King and her son were best friends. 

“He was such a good boy. I can’t understand how an adult would treat him so brutally,” Perry said. 

Ten-year-old Javontae Davis said he and King were very good friends. 

"I’m going to miss him a lot,” Davis said. “Why did they have to take his life at 15-years old?”
