2nd teen charged with murder of pastor
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Another 15-year-old is charged with killing Autura Eason-Williams.
Police say Eason-Williams was attacked in the driveway of her home on Whitehaven Lane. Police say video footage showed the suspects driving away in Eason-Williams’ vehicle, which was found wrecked at Lynchburg Street and Steuben Drive four hours later.
Eason-Williams was a well-known pastor at Capleville Methodist Church.
Last week, 15-year-old Miguel Andrade was charged with first-degree murder, murder in the perpetration of a robbery, especially aggravated robbery, carjacking and employing a firearm during a dangerous felony.
Shelby County District Attorney Amy Weirich said she was seeking to try Andrade as an adult.
A 16-year-old was also charged with theft of property.
Then on Friday, another 15-year-old was taken into custody.
Brayan Carillo is charged with first-degree murder, murder in the perpetration of a robbery, especially aggravated robbery, carjacking and employing a firearm during a dangerous felony.
Prosecutors say they discovered Carillo’s phone in a stolen vehicle that was used to follow Eason-Williams before she was killed.
Carillo has previous violent offenses and prosecutors will also seek to try him as an adult. His next court date is set for August 1.
