State police identified yesterday the two homicide victims whose bodies were found in the trunk of a car stopped for speeding last week on Interstate 95 in Cecil County.
The victims are Willie A. Robinson, 35, of the first block of Horton Ave., New Rochelle, N.Y., and Alexandria A. Withers, 21, of the 3400 block of N. O'Henry Blvd., Greensboro, N.C., said Maj. Greg Shipley, state police spokesman.
Shipley said the victims were acquaintances, last seen alive Nov. 5 between Greensboro and Danville, Va.
Investigators believe Robinson also was an acquaintance of James Moore, who is charged in the killings, Shipley said. Moore, 39, of Andrews, S.C., is originally from New Rochelle, Shipley said.
The bodies of Robinson and Withers, who had been shot, were found wrapped in plastic and blankets in the trunk of the car stopped Nov. 6 near Elkton. The car was driven by Moore; also in the car was Porsha L. Harper, 36, of Greensboro.
Moore and Harper are being held in the Cecil County Detention Center, each charged with first-degree murder and accessory to murder. Moore's bail is set at $500,000, while Harper's is $250,000.
