FIRST ON 3: Second suspect in custody for home invasion murder

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Wilmington Police have a second suspect in custody in connection with a murder during a home invasion earlier this month.

Officers are still processing Markee George, 26, for the death of Aaron McGhee, according to WPD spokeswoman Linda Rawley. McGhee, 47, died after being shot during a home invasion near Lilac Court and 13th Street June 13. Terae Kareen Graham was also shot, but he survived.

A relative tells WWAY police arrested George around 8:30 a.m. for murder, but the relative says George had nothing to do with the crime.

Last week police arrested Zeer Cannady, 20, and charged him with first-degree murder, first-degree attempted murder and several counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon, among other charges.

Police are still looking for a third suspect, but Rawley says they do not yet have a name to release.

The NC Department of Corrections website says George has a criminal record that includes ten convictions since the start of 2012 for crimes including communicating threats, assault on a female, resisting an officer and disorderly conduct. He received probation for all the offenses, including currently being on two years probation for five convictions in February.
