Police: Box of candy at scene of slaying in park had suspect’s fingerprints


October 24 at 6:43 PM

Should the allegations against Earl Junius Bennette prove true — police asserted Saturday that he and an associate killed a 22-year-old man in a Montgomery County park this month — Bennette surely will regret that box of Mike and Ike candy.:p

The box was found near the body of the victim. Detectives say fingerprints on the box matched Bennette’s, according to charging documents in the case. Other evidence implicating Bennette included cellphone contact with the victim and information from four people, at least one of whom didn’t provide his or her name to detectives, according to the documents.

Bennette, 24, was arrested Friday in Silver Spring. He was being held in the county jail Saturday on no-bond status. He has been charged with first-degree murder and armed robbery counts, as has Shante Gladden, 22, according to police. Gladden was arrested in the District.

In arrest records, detectives described the killing as drug-
related. The victim, Garrett Alexander McClees, was known to sell marijuana where he was killed: Edgewood Neighborhood Park, along Robey Road, in the county’s Briggs Chaney area, according to police. At the scene, detectives also found packaging with a “pungent” smell of marijuana, according to police, but no marijuana.
