SAGINAW (WJRT) (3/8/2018) - A total of six people are in custody for the shooting death of a 54-year-old grandmother in Saginaw last fall.

Shlindrill Lewis was shot to death on Oct. 26 as she sat in a car on Capehart Drive in the Sheridan Parks subdivision.

Police announced a 17-count indictment in the case on Thursday. Three arrests in the case happened on Wednesday with three more on Thursday:

-- Alexander Jones, 40: conspiracy to commit murder, six counts of third-offense felony firearms, first-degree murder, possession of a firearm by a felon and carrying a dangerous weapon with unlawful intent.

He also is accused of murder in the Sept. 8 shooting death of Willie Dawson outside of Dom's Food Market on Michigan Avenue near I-675.

-- Antonio Moore, 23: Conspiracy to commit murder, first-degree murder, carrying a dangerous weapon with unlawful intent.

-- Breyuanna Lee, 28: Two counts of solicitation of murder, accessory after a murder.

-- Tamaris Jones, 23: Conspiracy to commit murder, first-degree murder, carrying a dangerous weapon with unlawful intent, three counts of felony firearms.

-- Tarik Jones, 40: Conspiracy to commit murder, first-degree murder, carrying a dangerous weapon with unlawful intent, three counts of second-offense felony firearms.

-- Tauren Jones, 28: Conspiracy to commit murder, carrying a dangerous weapon with unlawful intent, three counts of felony firearms.

Lee faces up to five years in prison if she is convicted. The other five suspects all face up to life in prison without the possibility of parole if they are convicted.

The Saginaw Major Crimes Unit, which consists of Saginaw Police Department and Michigan State Police detectives, investigated the case. Detectives spent months tracking down leads and interviewing witnesses.

"Sometimes these things take time because you know, people are scared, they don't always want to come forward right away, but it weighs on them too and they do eventually come forward and that's when we get the information passed on to us and we take action," Saginaw Police Det. Sgt. Matt Gerow said on Wednesday.
