The third suspect in the stabbing of Steelers player Mike Adams and the woman who fled with him to Florida returned to Pittsburgh in custody Friday.
Jerrell Whitlock, 26, of Hazelwood, and Precious Gethers, 25, of Carrick, arrived at Pittsburgh police headquarters on the North Side shortly before 2 p.m.
Both declined comment when Allegheny County sheriff's deputies walked them inside for questioning. They were later taken to the Allegheny County Jail for arraignment.
Mr. Whitlock faces charges of attempted homicide, attempted robbery and other crimes after police said he and two other men worked together in a robbery attempt June 1 that led to Mr. Whitlock stabbing Mr. Adams at 17th and East Carson streets on Pittsburgh's South Side.
Ms. Gethers faces charges of endangering the welfare of a child and hindering apprehension after sheriff's deputies said she lied about being able to reach Mr. Whitlock when they were searching for him and then fled to northeastern Florida with him and the couple's 3-year-old son.
Mr. Whitlock was arrested two weeks ago when authorities found him in northeastern Florida, where some of his relatives live. He had been on the run since the stabbing.
Two other men, Dquay Means, 26, and Michael Paranay, 25, both of Hazelwood, have also been arrested in the case.
Mr. Means, a rapper who appeared in the music video for Wiz Khalifa's hit song "Black and Yellow," goes by the stage name Quay Meanz and recently signed with Mr. Khalifa's fledgling music label.
Pittsburgh police wrote in a criminal complaint that Mr. Adams left Cambod-Ican Kitchen at 17th and East Carson shortly before 3 a.m. on June 1. They wrote that Mr. Paranay sucker-punched Mr. Adams in the face while Mr. Means held a gun and Mr. Whitlock stabbed him.
