Antonia Gadson, aunt of accidentally shot-to-death Liquarry Jefferson, was arraigned today in Suffolk Superior Court on gun possession and drug trafficking charges related to the aftermath of a still unsolved 2006 murder, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office announced:
The charges against Gadson stem from the May 30, 2006, homicide of Dwayne Turnbow next to his car a short distance from Gadson's residence. Evidence suggests that, shortly after his death, she retrieved a .38 caliber revolver from his car and brought it into her home.
Boston Police investigating Turnbow’s death learned of the gun she allegedly took and obtained a search warrant for her residence. In the course of executing that warrant, they recovered that gun, a second firearm, a quantity of ammunition for firearms of various calibers, 54 Ecstasy tablets, and a large quantity of cocaine in powder and crack forms. Investigators also recovered scales, plastic baggies, and $4,800 dollars in cash.
Bail was set at $15,000.
Crime consumed a family, and an 8-year-old is lost.
