Multiple Suspects in Phoenix Homicide Case

Phoenix Liquor Store Shooting

Good ol Phoenix. Never boring that’s for sure. With Phoenix being so close to the border it’s a hot spot for growth but also criminal activity. Families want to move there to be closer to those who are waiting to be deported or have been newly deported and are working on becoming United States citizens.

Now two men will face charges for their connection for a shooting and the death of two men outside of a Phoenix liquor store back in April.

Both are relatively young suspects, twenty-four year old Kevin Dara Chheng and twenty-six year old Solomon Isaiah Banks were both arrested on suspicion of first degree murder charges.

According to the reports, the liquor store was located at 3502 W. Greenway Road.  The reports also said that both of the men had participated in the shootings that ended two men’s lives. However, there were other men with the two suspects.

It’s unclear what actually caused the shootings, however witness statements and video surveillance led the police to the two suspects.

Now the two men are going to face two counts of first degree murder. Banks will also face an additional charge of “hindering an investigation”. Chheng is going to face an aggravated assault charge. Things must have gotten pretty heated during the arrest.

Three People Arrested for Phoenix Murder

It’s kind of scary what this world is coming to. Another day, another robbery. Another day, another shooting. There’s always more and more crime and people dying.

Sadly a thirty-eight year old man has lost his life due to a shooting.

Three people have been arrested in connection for the killing of the thirty-eight year old man.

The suspects are: thirty-three year old- Crystal Amy Allison, twenty-six year old- Anthony Elias Thomas, and thirty-five year old- Luis Carlos Urias. They are being investigated for first degree murder, armed robbery with a deadly weapon, and possession of a dangerous drug for sale.  Quite a little list they have for themselves.

Suspects Arrested for Shooting

The three of them were arrested for the killing of thirty-eight year old, Roberto Silva-Perez aka Victor Cuadral and Jose Ramirez-Adriano.

The three suspects were arrested after the police found the man who they later identified as Silva-Perez. He had gunshot wounds and was found inside of a vehicle that was near 59th Avenue and McDowell Road. This happened just before midnight on Friday.

Sadly, he was pronounced dead at the scene of the crime.

The police of course obtained the suspect vehicle description from local witnesses from there they followed it southbound where they suspects tried to flee on foot.

The three suspects tried to get rid of a gun as well as drugs as they ran on foot but the police were able to capture them not long after the chase began.

According to the police, the shooting might have happened due to a drug deal.

Double Shooting in Phoenix

North Phoenix is a happening place. Sadly two men have lost their life due to a double shooting in North Phoenix.  Now the two men that was involved in the April shooting have finally been arrested.

The Phoenix police said that on April 26th two men were shot and killed outside of a liquor store. This happened near Greenway Road.

The police say that twenty-four year old and Twenty-five year old had “sought” out the two victims to assault or to kill them. Both of the shooting victims were thirty-two year old men.

Criminal Defense Cases

If you have been charged with murder, the attorney you choose to defend you will likely be one of the most important decisions you ever make. Obtaining a strong defense could be the difference between freedom and a life behind bars.


At the Phoenix based Offices of Criminal Defense Lawyers PLLC, you will find the experienced, dedicated and highly skilled trial attorneys you need to protect your rights. Each of our attorneys made a conscious decision to become a criminal defense lawyer. We could have chosen any other field of law, but defending the freedom and liberty of people who are facing the possibility of incarceration was our first choice. We believe strongly that skilled and passionate defense attorneys can make a difference in the lives of their clients. We go into every case feeling that we can make that difference.


Hiring the Right Homicide Lawyer in Phoenix

Having a skilled homicide defense attorney is important in any criminal case, but it is even more critical in a murder case. To properly defend a client against a murder charge, a defense lawyer must be prepared to effectively challenge the prosecution’s evidence. To do so, a Phoenix Murder Defense Attorney must be prepared to effectively cross-examine the prosecution’s witnesses, including any expert witnesses.


Expert Witnesses

In some cases, a Phoenix Homicide Defense Attorney may need to use expert witnesses on behalf of the defendant to challenge forensic evidence, ballistics evidence and other scientific evidence presented by the prosecution. We are prepared to do so and have worked with expert witnesses in the past to provide a vigorous defense on our clients’ behalf.


In addition to fighting your charges at trial (or seeking a case dismissal for lack of probable cause), we can also negotiate with the prosecution to seek a favorable plea agreement. A plea agreement might involve a plea to a lesser offense or an agreement on sentencing that will significantly reduce the penalties you face.


Homicide Defense Strategy

We will take the time to talk to witnesses, investigate what really happened in your case, understand what evidence is in the prosecution’s possession, look for holes in the prosecution’s case, and determine if the police violated your constitutional rights or made other critical errors that can be used to your advantage.

We are committed to raising a strong and comprehensive defense on your behalf. Depending on the facts of your case, the following defenses and strategies may be helpful:


  • Self-Defense
  • Insanity
  • Mistaken Identity
  • Suppression of Evidence
  • Challenging DNA, Fingerprint Evidence and other Forensic Evidence
  • Challenging Ballistics Evidence (Relating to Firearms and Bullets)
  • Challenging the Reliability of an Eyewitness
  • Challenging Whether the Evidence Sustains a Murder Conviction
  • Negotiation with the Prosecution to Determine if a Plea Agreement Could

Significantly Minimize the Charges or Penalties you Face
