GRNAD RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - A third person has been charged with perjury in connection with the homicide of Latrice Maze.
Authorities tell 24 Hour News 8 29-year-old Tashara Lassane Brown was arraigned Wednesday on one count of perjury. Prosecutors say Brown lied to authorities during an interview under oath.
A $10,000 bond was set for Brown; she posted bond and has been released from jail. She is scheduled to be back in court on May 28.
Police believe Maze was killed on March 19 in her Burton Street home and that her body was placed in a dumpster the same day by her boyfriend, Jahleel Hoskins.
Hoskins was arraigned on May 8 on charges of open murder , evidence tampering and perjury in the death of the 25-year-old mother of five. Hoskins says he is innocent of all the charges.
Another man, Gregory Shanklin, was arrested the same day as Hoskins. He is charged with perjury, allegedly lying to prosecutors who were investigating the case. Grand Rapids police requested two warrants in the case against Shanklin. In one of those requests, police say Shanklin was under oath when he "lied about knowledge of associates' contact with a gun and/or contact/communication with Jahleel Hoskins".
