LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Lubbock Police Detectives took a trip to the Albuquerque Jail to talk to murder suspect Charity Wilcots, and the warrant for her arrest sheds some light on the investigation.

Wilcots, 21, was charged with the May 23rd murder of 28-year-old Marqus Lewis. Lewis was found in his home, shot multiple times, near Erskine and North Frankford. Wilcots turned herself in to New Mexico authorities on Monday morning.

A police affidavit attached to the warrant indicates there may be two other people who were at the crime scene with Wilcots. According to the warrant, they may be juveniles and one of them may have been the shooter.

One suspect is described as a black male, around 15-years-old, 5'3" 120 lbs, braided hair, with several aliases. He is considered armed and dangerous and might be wearing bullet proof vest. He has outstanding warrants. Police are searching for a second suspect. Because of their ages, their names have not been released.
