Danville teen charged as accessory to double homicide in Turbeville / March 19, 2020
A Danville 17-year-old has become the second person charged in the double homicide of two young people on Route 58 in Turbeville in February.

On Thursday, the Virginia State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation’s Appomattox Field Office took the 17-year-old male suspect into custody. The juvenile has been charged in Halifax County with one count of obstruction of justice and one count of accessory after the fact.

The juvenile petitions are connected to the Feb. 8, 2020 murders on Route 58 in Halifax County near Melon Road.

At 2:51 a.m., a silver 2009 Nissan Maxima was located in the median with Ntombo Joel Bianda, 21, of Alexandria, and Ayanna Munne Maertens Griffin, 19, of Germantown, Md., found deceased and lying in the grass nearby. Both had suffered gunshot wounds.

On Feb. 13, state police arrested Mohamed A. Aly, 18, of Alexandria on two counts of first degree murder and two counts of use of a firearm in the commission of felony.

Aly is still being held at the Blue Ridge Regional Jail in Halifax.

State Police investigators continue to work with the Halifax County Commonwealth’s Attorney, FBI Richmond Field Office, ATF, Danville Police Department, and several local law enforcement agencies on the homicide investigation.

As the investigation remains ongoing at this time, the Virginia State Police is still encouraging anyone with information about this incident or individuals involved to contact the department at 434-352-7128 or #77 on a cell phone or to mail .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
