FIGHT LEADS TO MAN’S DEATH, MURDER CHARGE

A domestic situation turned violent in Perry County over Memorial Day weekend, leaving one man dead and two others behind bars.

Perry County District Attorney Michael Jackson is calling this a senseless act that left Kenderrick “Flick” Dansby of Uniontown dead at 22 from blunt force trauma to the head.

The man charged with Dansby’s murder is 24-year-old Roshawd Letrell Shepherd. Jackson said Dansby and another man, Quinton McGhee, were arguing with a woman at Buck and Rice Manor in Uniontown Saturday afternoon when the woman called Shepard and 24-year-old Tyrell Barnett to “take care of Dansby and McGhee.”

When the men arrived at the home, they and the two who were already there began fighting. McGhee was knocked unconscious and Dansby was struck in the head so much it lead to his death.

Jackson said both Dansby and McGhee were left on the sidewalk outside for at least a half-hour before someone took them to an area hospital.

The woman who initiated the fight will also face charges, Jackson said, and an autopsy will reveal if Dansby was hit in the head with an object or if he died from his head hitting the ground.

Shepherd and Barnett remain in the Perry County Jail on no bond.
