TROY, N.Y. -- Another suspect was arrested Thursday afternoon on indictment for Murder in the 2nd-Degree in relation to the fatal stabbing of Takim Smith in Troy.
Arrested and charged by the indictment out of Rensselaer County Court was Davonte Alexander McGill, 18 of 684 2nd Ave., Troy.
Six other suspects have been arrested and charged in connection with his death:
• Keyanna Bradley, 18
• Unnamed 16-year-old female
• Eric Mallard, 19
• Ravenal Dunbar, 17
• Keith Ferguson, 17
grand jury handed up charges of 2nd-Degree Murder, 1st and 2nd-Degree Robbery, Conspiracy and Criminal Possession of a Weapon to all of the above.
Police believe the teens knew that Smith had just been awarded more than $60,000 in a medical settlement and, with intentions of robbing him, used the females to lure him to the apartment Monday night with a promise of sex as bait.
Once Smith was there, police believe that is when the robbery turned into a fatal stabbing.
