Anthony Campbell was indicted Wednesday on a charge of first-degree murder while armed in connection with the death of Antwain Henderson. Campbell was also charged with evidence tampering and two firearms offenses in the case; he pled innocent to all charges Friday.
Prosecutors allege that Campbell shot and killed Henderson on Aug. 31, 2011, because he was angry that Henderson told people that Campbell was an informant on a charge that Henderson was convicted of in 2003.
A Metropolitan Police detective testified last year that witnesses reported that Henderson and Campbell were having an argument outside Campbell’s mother’s house in Northeast D.C. As Henderson turned to walk away, Campbell shot him in the head. Arrest documents state that Henderson’s body was then brought into the house. Police found Henderson’s blood in the basement, the detective said.
Co-defendant, Phillip Glover, is alleged to have assisted Campbell in transporting Henderson’s body to Maryland in a vehicle which they then set on fire, according to the indictment.
A status hearing has been scheduled for May 24.
The indictment is below.
