Second woman in custody in slaying of Detroit auto parts store manager

DETROIT (AP MODIFIED) - A second woman is now in custody in connection to the fatal shooting of a 69-year-old Detroit auto parts store manager during a robbery.

Detroit police say 28-year-old Eboni Monae Mcewen-Ross turned herself in Monday evening. 

Two other people have been charged by the Wayne County prosecutor's office, 23-year-old Shawnta Anderson and 39-year-old Leviticus Butler. 

Anderson is charged with murder, armed robbery and using a firearm during a felony. Butler is charged with being an accessory after the fact.

Surveillance video shows two women running from an O'Reilly Auto Parts Store on Detroit's west side on November 1 after James Haller Jr. was shot once in the head. Haller later would be pronounced dead at a hospital.

Police Chief James Craig has said Haller was a Vietnam war veteran and also served in the 1970s as a reserve police officer.
