Mother and Half-brother of Malik Terrell Charged with Aiding a Felon
MILWAUKEE - May 23, 2018
Malik Terrell has been charged with the beating to the death of 15-year-old Dennis King.
The mother of Malik Terrell, Salena Terrell, told police that one of her sons told her that he had been robbed at gunpoint and his video game system was stolen. She said one of her sons and Malik lured King known as "Boo Man" to the house and Malik beat him with a hammer before taking King's body to a house down the alley. Salena Terrell told police to check nearby abandoned houses in the search for "Boo Man."
On May 14, three days before King's mother told police he was missing, Salena Terell put Malik on a bus to Chicago to stay with his father.
On May 20, Milwaukee Police officers found the burnt remains of King in an abandoned house near 11th and Concordia.
Meakhi Autry-Terrell, Malik's half-brother, told the police that on May 11 Malik and his other brother attacked King to get him to confess of being a participant of the robbery and to reveal the location of others who was involved. Meakhi said that Malik forced entry into the house to make it look like a home invasion and called 911 to tell them that their house was broken into and they had an accomplice detained. According to Meakhi, the police never came.
Meakhi told the police, he used towels and disinfectant spray to clean up King's blood on the walls and told his 13-year-old sister to put headphones over her ears so she wouldn't hear the victim screaming.
According to Meakhi, Malik told him to find some lighter fluid. When he came upstairs with the fluid he saw Malik stabbing "Boo Man" repeatedly in the neck with a large knife and then he saw King become still, his eyes go blank. Later in the day, Meakhi's brother told him that they moved King's body to an abandoned house where they burned it.
