Detroit police: 2011 slaying suspect turns self in


DETROIT  — Police say a 25-year-old charged in the 2011 slaying of a man whose body was found inside a Detroit garage following a fire has turned himself in after a public appeal for information on his whereabouts.

Police announced last week they were looking for Antowan Stitts. The Wayne County prosecutor's office says the charge stems from the death of 20-year-old Delrico Taylor, whose body was discovered Sept. 12, 2011. Police said blood was found outside the garage.

The prosecutor's office says today it didn't know whether Stitts had a lawyer.

Police say a citizen contacted them about the case Thursday and Stitts turned himself in Friday at a Detroit police precinct. The department says Stitts was arraigned Saturday on a first-degree murder charge. He's jailed pending a Mar. 20 hearing.
