An initial investigation identified Connie Di’Rose Miller, 18, as the suspect. She was arrested within less than 24 hours after several search warrants were issued, the sheriff’s office said.

“Thanks for the forward-thinking investments made by the City of Chester and Chester County in cutting-edge technology, we once again owe a debt of gratitude for their instrumental role in solving this case. Just a few months ago, the implementation of Shot Spotter and the Flock Camera systems within our city and county has proven invaluable to law enforcement. These systems have significantly enhanced our response times and provided crucial identification of vehicles and suspect information involved in criminal activities,” Chief William Petty said.

Evidence was recovered from the executed search warrants as were drugs and cash, deputies said. Miller has been charged with murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

She is being held at the Chester County Detention Center.
