One of four suspects in connection with a June double homicide is appearing in a Guernsey County courtroom Tuesday.

Elgin Mitchell, 20, is scheduled to enter a plea for three first-degree felonies.

The charges include complicity to commit murder, complicity to commit aggravated robbery and complicity to commit felonious assault.

Mitchell, along with Tyler Burrell, 22, are accused in the deaths of Christopher Morrison and Justain Nelson.

Morrison was found dead in front of a Coventry Estates apartment building on June 24.

Nelson was found wounded but alive behind the same building as Morrison.

Nelson later died from his wounds at Southeastern Medical.

Both causes of death were from multiple gunshot wounds to the chest.

Megan Blanchard, 23, and Anjomo "Boomer" Churchill, 20, were also taken into custody shortly after the incident.

They were charged with complicity to commit aggravated robbery, a first-degree felony.

Both were convicted of the offenses and will be sentenced at a later date.
