Three people have been charged with the murder of Christopher Turner

Hagerstown, Md. (DG) – Three people have been charged with the murder of 27-year-old Christopher Turner from Hagerstown whose body was found last month in Berkeley County, West Virginia.

Hagerstown Police say 19-year-old Antonio Arana from Jefferson, 19-year-old Dakota Paugh, and 21-year-old Erica Earl, both of Hagerstown, are charged with first and second-degree murder.

Police said on January 23rd Turner’s family reported him missing. A week later the Berkeley County’s Sheriff’s Office found Turner’s body, and said the condition that the body was found indicated it was a murder.

Arana was arrested Sunday in Frederick and is being held without bond at the Washington County Detention Center.

Earl was arrested Friday in Jacksonville, Florida. Paugh was arrested Sunday morning in Washington, D.C. Both are awaiting extradition to Washington County.

All three face additional charges of first-degree assault, second-degree assault, armed robbery, robbery, and firearms violations.
