Sanford police on Monday announced three additional arrests in the case of a woman who was killed by a stray bullet on Jan. 11.
Vicente Galarza Alvarez, 18, of 4293 McNeill Road in Harnett County and Jazmine Joanne Urrutia, 20, of 105 Cascade Court in Sanford, were located by Sanford Police and the U.S. Marshal service at the Days Inn at 1217 N. Horner Blvd. early Monday morning. About an hour earlier, Emrique Deangelo Lee, 20, of 1116 Juniper Drive was located by U.S. Marshals in Raleigh.
Alvarez and Lee each face charges of first degree murder, while Urrutia is charged with accessory after the fact to first degree murder.
The charges stem from a Jan. 11 incident in which 22-year-old Diamond Richardson was killed after being struck by a bullet while she rode in a friend’s car on Simmons Street. At the time, Sanford patrol officers heard the gunshots and responded to the location, where they found several young men running from the area. At the time, Rayshawn Donaldon and a 17-year-old juvenile were apprehended and charged with murder.
It’s unclear whether further charges are pending in the case. Alvarez and Lee were each jailed without bond, while Urruria is being held under $75,000 secured bond.
