Four Suspects Charged in Death of Homeless Man

The Meridian Police Department has arrested four people in the death of 52-year-old David A. Caraway in late June. He was found in an alley behind Hope Village Thrift Store.

The suspects arrested for armed robbery and manslaughter are 17-year-old Antshawn Davis of 2806 7th Street; D’Anthony Davis, 19, of 2801 7th Street; and Marcus Anderson, 20, of 2806 7th Street. A fourth suspects, 19-year-old Antonio Chapman, turned himself in late Thursday afternoon.

A bond of $100,000 has been sent for each of the charges, totaling $200,000 for each suspect.

Officials say a preliminary autopsy report showed Caraway's death was due to blunt force trauma to internal organs. Detectives say they believe the damage was caused by a physical assault. Police plan to present the case to the November grand jury.
