MONROVIA, Montserrado – On April 19, 2019, the Liberia National Police charged and forwarded to court three suspects in connection with the murder of the mother of football star Theo Weeks.
According to police charge sheet, suspects Jah Walker, aged 23, Tito David, 24, and Lawrenzo Robinsin, 35, were charged with criminal conspiracy, armed robbery, and murder of victim Lydia Lewis Weeks of the R-2 community on the Robertsfield Highway in Margibi on Tuesday, April 9, 2019.
The police charge sheet also said that Alphonso Egan, 19, and Amadu S. Dolleh, 38, were also charged with criminal facilitation and aiding in the crime.

Following the murder of the victim, police said Trokon Weeks, a resident of Zayzay community in Paynesville, reported the incident to the police’s anti-robbery unit.
