Arrests Announced in 2007 Danville Triple Homicide
Two men are in custody on in connection with a 4-year old triple homicide on Danville's east side. Authorities identified one of the two men charged Wednesday.
36-year old David Moore of Chicago and a 26-year old Danville man indentified in news reports as Jerome Harris were indicted late last month by a Vermilion County Grand Jury, and each faces 15 counts of first degree murder. Danville Publc Safety Director Larry Thomason says Moore was arrested by U.S. Marshalls in Chicago on Monday, and returned to Danville on Wednesday. Harris was arrested on an unrelated charge by Danville police on March 25th.
On the morning of March 25th, 2007, police were called to the 17-hundred block of East Main after a report of shots fired. The body of 30-year old Rodney Pepper was found in the roadway. Inside a home there, two other men were found shot to death, identified as 19-year old Madisen Levernz and 21-year old Taberyan McCullough. Both Moore and the other man are being held without bond.
Vermilion County State's Attorney Randy Brinegar says the case is ongoing, and wouldn't rule out other arrests, and that each man faces 20 years to life in prison. Thomason says at least 2 detectives were assigned to the case the past 4 years.
