Five Detroit men have been charged with first-degree murder in the abduction and slayings of two Michigan women, who were kidnapped in late February and found dead a month later. Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy announced the charges during a news conference Saturday morning.
According to witnesses, friends and roommates Ashley Conaway, 22, and Abreeya Brown, 18, of Hamtramck, were kidnapped in front of the home they shared with Brown's stepfather. They were forced into a car trunk at gunpoint. On March 25, their bodies were found bound and shot in head from shallow graves not far from their home.
Brandon Cain, 26, Miguel Rodriquez, 24, Reginald Brown, 24, Jeremy Brown, 19, and Brian Lee, 25, are charged with two counts of first-degree premeditated murder, two counts of felony murder, two counts of torture and two counts of unlawful imprisonment, Worthy said. If they are convicted, each one of them will face life in prison without parole.
