Police link three men to murder of University of Michigan medical student Paul DeWolf

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (WXYZ) - A third suspect in the murder of a U of M medical student was arraigned Thursday on an unrelated charge.

A tip led police to 21-year-old Shaquille Jones in South Carolina. He is one of three suspects in the murder of U of M medical student Paul DeWolf, according to The Detroit Free Press. 

Jones was extradited to Michigan and arrived Wednesday night. He was in court today, but not for murder. 

Police tied Jones to an item stolen from a residence on the same block where DeWolf lived, just a day before the 25-year-old's murder. 

Jones was charged for receiving and concealing stolen property. The prosecutor's office is reviewing murder charges against Jones.

A second suspect, 20-year-old Joei Jordan was also arrested in South Carolina and is waiting to be extradited to Michigan on a murder warrant. 

The third suspect, 20-year-old Dajeon Franklin is also sitting in the Washtenaw County Jail.  Even though authorities also suspect him in the murder of DeWolf, he has only been charged for a stolen credit card in unrelated case.  The credit card was also stolen from the same block where the U of M medical student lived. 

Police will not confirm that the three men are suspects in DeWolf's murder and they have not been charged with his murder.
