Judge dismisses all charges against last remaining defendant in Chesdin Landing ‘mansion party’ killings 2 years ago

Judge dismisses all charges articleA Chesterfield County judge on Tuesday dismissed all charges against a Richmond man accused of fatally shooting two men at a 2016 Labor Day weekend “mansion party” in Chesdin Landing attended by hundreds of people.

After a two-day trial, Chesterfield Circuit Judge T.J. Hauler granted a defense motion to strike the evidence beyond a reasonable doubt against Djion C. Bowles, 22. He faced two counts each of second-degree murder and felony use of a firearm, and one count of maliciously shooting at an occupied dwelling in the Sept. 4, 2016, shooting deaths of Marc Starkes, 24, of Amelia County, and Duval Turner Jr., 22, of Richmond.

Bowles was the last of three defendants still charged in the case to be tried, and the first to be found not guilty.
