A man who was indicted with two other men on murder charges in the deaths of two men following a December 2019 shooting is in the Montgomery County Jail.

Deon Maurice Harris Jr., 28, is charged with aggravated murder, murder, aggravated burglary, having weapons while under disability and failing to comply with the order of a police officer, according to jail records.

Jail records show Harris was transferred to the Montgomery County Jail from the Toledo Correctional Institution.

Harris was indicted along with Daylequan S. Arnold Jr. and King A. Turner, who are held in the Montgomery County Jail.

The charges come from a shooting in the early morning hours of Dec. 21, 2019, in the 900 block of Ethel Avenue in Dayton.

Police who responded found Frankie McGee Jr. dead at the scene. A second victim, Christopher Huntley, was taken to a local hospital, where he died a week later. McGee and Huntley had been shot multiple times, according to Montgomery County Prosecutor Mat Heck Jr.

Heck said previously that Harris, along with Arnold and Turner are accused of forcing their way into a home intending to commit a burglary. At some point during the burglary, the two victims were fatally shot.

According to jail records, Harris is due in court Thursday morning.
