Authorities track Tolliver brothers to Fla., charge them with first-degree murder in Pr. William shooting

Authorities say they have tracked down and arrested the two remaining suspects in a slaying last week in eastern Prince William County.

Brothers Christopher Jonathon Tolliver, 27, of the 1700 block of Washington Street in Dumfries and Douglas Jason Tolliver, of the 4000 block of Jonathan Court in Dumfries , were tracked by U.S. marshals and the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office to North Palm Beach, Fla., according to a Prince William County police department news release.

Both men have been charged with first-degree murder in the killing of Tasheka Lashon Leavell, 35, who was found shot to death in the 17600 block of Washington Street in Dumfries last Thursday.

The pair is awaiting extradition to Prince William County. A court date has not been set.

Reginald K. Tolliver, 38, a third brother, also has been charged with first-degree murder in Leavell’s death. He is being held in Prince William County.
