Arrest in murder of Iowa teen Marcellus Andrews

by Mike Andrew - SGN Staff Writer

Waterloo, Iowa, police reported on September 8 that they have made an arrest in the death of Marcellus Andrews.

The Waterloo Police Department said it had arrested 19-year-old Paris Akeem Anding, a resident of Waterloo.

Anding was booked into Black Hawk County Jail on a charge of murder in the second degree. No bail was set.

Anding was also booked on an outstanding aggravated assault warrant that was not related to the killing of Andrews.

Andrews, 19, was beaten to death during a brawl on August 19. According to eyewitnesses, his killers called him a 'faggot' and other anti-Gay slurs both before and during the attack.

Nakita Wright, a friend of Andrews and an eyewitness to the killing, said that at least one of the assailants kicked Andrews in the face after he had been beaten to the ground.

According to Waterloo police, the incident resulted from prior friction between Andrews' friends, who he was visiting on the night of his death, and Andrews' killers. Andrews himself was not party to the feud, police said.

In a previous interview, police chief Dan Trelka told SGN that his department had interviewed 'everyone who was present' at the scene, but accounts of the incident 'differed widely.'

No further details have been released as SGN goes to press. Police say they will not elaborate on the latest developments because the investigation is still ongoing.
