Accused Meth Dealer Involved in Double Homicide Released from Tom Green County Jail
SAN ANGELO, TX -- A known associate of the man who allegedly murdered two men last March was released on to another agency last night.
According to jailing records, on November 21 at 2:28 p.m., Shannon McGhee was released to another agency.
He is charged with manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance, and driving while license invalid.
These charges stem from the murder of Jared Lohse and Jack Harris Jr. Here is the original murder story: Suspect Charged in North Side Double Homicide
McGhee's involvement did not include the actual murder itself but the alleged arson of the home the two were murdered in. Here is the story: Suspect Implicated in Fiery Double Murder on N. Chadbourne Has Bond Reduced...A Little
According to an affidavit, 36-year-old Dwayne Chance Chadwick is charged with capital murder in the shooting deaths of Lohse and Harris. According to court documents, Chadwick visited a residence on Guadalupe and talked to a man there named Shannon McGhee. According to multiple witnesses police interviewed, Chadwick told McGhee he shot and killed Jared and Chubby and needed McGhee to go to the house and burn it down.
The affidavit states that McGhee left the home on Guadalupe with Ruben Lira in his vehicle. Lira told police they drove around the house several times before heading to a Stripes south of there on Chadbourne. While Lira was in the Stripes purchasing two drinks and a candy bar, Lira said McGhee stayed outside. The video surveillance police reviewed do not show McGhee, the affidavit states.
Lira told police as the two were traveling south on Chadbourne from the Stripes, fire trucks with lights and sirens were speeding north.
Although McGhee has been released, he is still facing the multiple drug charges. His final criminal pre-trial is set for December 3 in hopes for his jury trial to begin on December 16.
