Four people are now charged with killing Waynesboro reserve police officer Kevin Wayne Quick (pictured). The suspects previously faced other charges in the case. Federal grand jury indictments of murder and kidnapping have been filed against Daniel Lamont Mathis, Shantai Monique Shelton, Mersadies Lachalle Shelton and Travis Leon Bell. They’re accused of carjacking and kidnapping Quick and driving to various banks in an effort to withdraw from his accounts. The indictments say the four are accused of then killing Quick and dumping his body in Goochland County. The federal indictments unsealed Friday in U.S. District Court in Charlottesville are among 28 returned against nine people arrested in connection with the fatal shooting of the 45-year-old Quick. He was reported missing February 1st. Authorities say the four defendants were either members or close associates of the 99 Goon Syndikate, which is affiliated with the Bloods street gang. Many of the other charges are related to alleged gang activities.
