The live-in girlfriend of a York City man accused of fatally shooting Dashaun Davis during an apparent robbery has now also been charged with the homicide, bringing the total number of co-defendants to four.

Shonique Shavon Smith-Hanna, 24, of 244 S. Duke St., was arraigned Wednesday and committed to York County Prison without bail. She is charged with homicide, robbery and conspiracy to commit both charges.

Jeffrey A. Reid Jr. is believed to have fired the bullets that killed Davis the night of July 19, York City Police Capt. Tim Utley has said.

Detectives believe Reid and his three co-defendants were part of a robbery crew that intended to rob Davis, according to Utley.

In Virginia: Reid, 27, of 244 S. Duke St., was tracked down and arrested Monday in Richmond, Va., by members of the U.S. Marshals Service.

He remains in custody in that city, awaiting extradition on his charges of homicide, conspiracy to commit homicide, being a convicted felon in illegal possession of a firearm, and three counts each of robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery.

The other two York City men charged in Davis' death remain in York County Prison without bail, charged with homicide, robbery and conspiracy to commit those charges.

They are Naquan "Squeeze" Coakley, 22, of 1155 E. King St., and Malik "Problem" Williams, 18, of 766 W. Market St., Apt. 6.

Also still in custody is Karina DeJesus, arrested Monday in Richmond with Reid. She is accused of helping Reid flee from police, who have said Reid is the father of at least one of DeJesus' three children.

Once extradited, DeJesus, 23, of 1101 Market St. in Harrisburg, will be charged with hindering the apprehension of a suspect, police said.

The homicide: Davis, 23, was fatally shot in his car about 11 p.m. July 19 in the 200 block of Union Street, just around the corner from his family's Juniper Street home, according to police.

Officers responding to the scene seized and towed a blue Cadillac found parked in the block, which witnesses said Reid was driving just prior to the fatal shooting, according to police.

Reid told a witness "the murder weapon" was in the Cadillac "and that his DNA and fingerprints would be found on it," documents state. Several people heard him making the statement, and also heard him claim he was being framed for the slaying by "Problem" and "Squeeze," according to documents.

Handgun found: Inside the Cadillac — which is registered to Reid's brother — police found a .380-caliber handgun and ammunition, documents state.

A witness told police Reid and Smith-Hanna were seen walking in the 200 block of Union Street 10 to 15 seconds before four or five gunshots rang out, according to charging documents.

"Neither Reid (nor) Smith-Hanna are seen for the remainder of the night," documents state.

Another witness reported seeing Reid in the area with a handgun, according to documents.

Fire probe: Police confirmed Reid also is a suspect in a fire investigation that is unrelated to the homicide case.

The three-unit apartment building where Reid lived was damaged by a fire that erupted there about midnight July 21, city fire officials have said. The bulk of the fire was contained to Reid's first-floor apartment.
