Default 3 Teenigger Monkeys Charged in Greensboro WM, 74 Blunt Force Trauma Death - 1 only got 6 months


3 Teenagers Charged in Greensboro Manís Death

9:06 p.m. EDT August 5, 2015

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Police have arrested and charged three teenagers in connection to the death of a 74-year-old man.

Police found the body of Larry Eugene Brown
on Greenbriar Road - just off N. Church St. - July 29. Investigators say Brown was robbed and assaulted, around 5:30 a.m., while walking to the bus stop. He suffered, what police call, "significant" blunt force trauma to his head and died from his injuries.

Police say they received a Crime Stoppers tip that led to the arrest of 17-year-old D'Angelo Matthews. He is charged with first-degree murder and robbery with a dangerous weapon.

Matthews, a rising junior at Page High School, was 16 at the time of the murder and turned 17 Wednesday. He spent his birthday in court as he made his first appearance, via closed-circuit television, at the Guilford County Courthouse. A judge issued Matthews a court-appointed attorney, and did not set a bond for the suspect.

Police also charged two juveniles, a 14-year-old girl and a 15-year-old boy, with first-degree murder and robbery with a dangerous weapon. Police said all three suspects are in custody.

Capt. Mike Richey, with the Greensboro Police Department, told WFMY News 2 the three teenagers were driving down the road when they decided to attack and rob Brown. Richey says the teenagers stole items of "minimum value."

Richey also said the department is investigating the group's possible connection to vandalism and petty theft in the area.

GREENSBORO ó Three Greensboro teens accused of killing a man with a fire extinguisher over the meager contents in his pockets were indicted by a Guilford County grand jury this week.

Larry Eugene Brown, 74, of 133 Greenbriar Road Apt. A was killed July 29 while walking to the bus. He died of massive blunt force trauma to the head, according to police. An arrest warrant states Brown was struck with a fire extinguisher. He was robbed of his wallet, a flashlight, a cell phone and $3.

DíAngelo Nathaniel Matthews, 17, of 3503 Sherbourne Lane, is indicted on charges of first-degree murder, robbery with a dangerous weapon and conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon. He was previously only charged with the first two counts.

ďThere was evidence to support the (additional) charge,Ē said Howard Neumann, Guilford County chief assistant district attorney who will be trying the case.

In addition to Matthews, Christopher Shakel Williams, 16, of 3616 Martin Ave., and Ketrellia Monaja Harris, 15, of 1326 Ogden St., are indicted on the same charges as Matthews. The trio is accused of conspiring to rob Brown that morning, then hitting and killing him with a fire extinguisher.

Teen convicted in brutal murder of elderly NC man will probably only serve 6 months

Updated: May 27, 2019 05:24 AM EDT

GREENSBORO, N.C. ó It's been an excruciating four years for the Brown family.

Larry Brown, 74, was brutally beaten to death with a fire extinguisher at while he was walking to the bus stop in August 2015.

Three teens were involved in the murder
on Greenbriar Road.

After killing Brown, they stole $3.

The youngest teenager involved in the crime was sentenced this week: now 18-year-old Ketrellia Harris. She was 14 when it happened.

Larry Brown's daughter-in-law Lauren was there for the sentencing Tuesday. She said she locked eyes with Harris.

"She did turn around and look at me, and did tell us 'I do apologize for what happened Iím truly, honestly sorry I wish this never happened."

Lauren said her exact words were:

"I have grown and found myself, and realized at that age I was stupid and I should have done it a lot differently."

But the Brown family wasn't buying it.

"I mean she wasnít showing any remorse at the time, every once in a while youíd see her lift her glasses and act like she was trying to wipe a tear or something."

Harris was sentenced to a maximum of 65 months in prison. But her public defender said she will probably only serve 6 months because of time-served in juvenile detention.

The Brown family says it's not enough.

"Youíre not getting pity from us, it was ridiculous we donít feel like she got quite a strong enough sentence."

Yet, Lauren still had it in her heart to ask for some mercy.

"We donít feel like she got a strong enough sentence but I did look at the judge and say have some mercy on her, it seems like sheís trying to straighten her life out, she got her high school diploma {in juvenile detention}."

Harris's family approached the Brown family after the sentencing and there were some heated moments.

"[Ketrellia's] mother and grandma, when we were leaving the courthouse waiting to get on the elevator did come up to me, and was like 'weíre sorry for your loss' and I was just like really?"

Lauren was in disbelief.

"It was like at that point, it took so much from keeping me from turning around and just punching her, it took a lot."

Lauren worries that all three who took part in killing her father-in-law will be free one day.

"Your punishment should be the same as what you do to that person, and itís hard to see and know that they will all eventually get out."

D'Angelo Matthews and Christopher Shakel Williams are the other two involved, both charged with Murder.

Williams is serving a 20-year prison sentence and Matthews is serving a 25-year prison sentence.

Larry's only son Lonnie says he wants to forgive, but cannot.

"I've got a church and everything you know what I mean, it's hard but I should {forgive}" Lonnie said.

"You should forgive?" WFMY News 2's Jess Winters asked.

"Yeah I should," Lonnie stated.

"But have you?" Winters pressed.

"No I haven't, it'll probably take over time and everything."

Lauren agrees.

"We won't ever forgive them, especially not 100% because you canít forgive someone that does something like that to anybody, especially a family member."

But closure could be coming now that all the court proceedings are over with.

"It does give you that slight bit of peace and final closure," Lauren said. "This has been almost 4 years and it's hard, I mean it's still hard even after the sentencing."

They both described Larry as a great dad, a great man, and someone who would give you the shirt off his back.
