Defendant Darryl Lloyd, 29, was denied bond today at the Markham courthouse. Lloyd and three other men already in custody have been charged with three counts of first-degree murder and one count of attempted murder in the Oct. 24, 2010, triple homicide, the Cook County State's Attorney's Office said in a news release.
The men were attempting to rob the home of 28-year-old Donysha Stovall in the 300 block of West 151st Street, the state's attorney's office reported. Prosecutors said Lloyd and two other defendants broke into the apartment and shot and killed Stovall in the living room, and then went on to the bathroom where they fatally shot her boyfriend's 16-year-old son Shaquill Davis in the back of the head as he took a shower; police found him curled up in a fetal position on the shower floor.
The three men allegedly then found Stovall's 10-year-old daughter Clarisma Torry in a bedroom and fatally shot her, and went on to chase her 4-year-old brother Nate Davis into a bedroom, shooting multiple times as the little boy tried to hide under the bed covers.
The 4-year-old was the only survivor. Stovall's boyfriend also lived in the apartment but was not there at the time of the shootings.
The defendants had believed that large amounts of drugs and money were in the apartment but failed to find any and instead stole a large flat screen television and carried it to the getaway car, where the fourth defendant was waiting, prosecutors said.
Lloyd and fellow defendants 25-year-old Faheem Norwood and 23-year-old Dejuan Crockett were in the home during the shootings, while 29-year-old Brandon Griffin remained in the car, according to the release. All of the men have been denied bond.
At the time of the shooting, Clarisma had just learned to ride a small pink bike; neighbors said Stovall was planning a joint
