Suspect Charged In July Murder At Dollar Tree on West Market In Akron Featured

Written by

Although it took them a couple of months to connect the dots; Akron Police have identified the suspect they believe walked up to 34 year old Ernestine Stallings as she loaded up her car in the parking lot of the Dollar Tree Store at 2246 West Market Street on July 3, and gunned her down in broad daylight, at 1:30PM.

In fact, it turns out they didn't have to look very far to find him. 

24 year old Jontae Watkins, was literally under their noses; already behind bars on unrelated charges, in the Summit County Jail.

While he's been a "person of interest"  for awhile;  police say they believe evidence, including drugs and $33,0000 in cash, that they found at a residence on Stoner Street, connects him directly to the shooting.
