Third man arrested in Del. teen murder

NEW CASTLE, Del. - December 10, 2009

The Marshals Fugitive Task Force arrested Khary Knight, 21, of Newark who was indicted for the murder of 18-year-old Clifford Steed that occurred on July 28, 2009, at the Georgetown Manor Apartments near New Castle.

Marshals received information Knight was staying with family on the 100 block of Hawk Drive, Raven Glen, Newark. At approximately 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, police set up surveillance and saw Khary Knight come out the house and go into a minivan. Knight was taken into custody without incident.

On that July day, police say Steed was walking from his parents' home in Carriage Run to a friend's home nearby when he was approached by Knight and two others.

The three then robbed and shot Steed, who made it to a hallway but died at the hospital, police say.

The two other men, Charles Ringgold, 20, of the unit block of Bradley Drive in Newark and Tavaughn Crosell, 17, of the unit block of Fairway Road in Newark have already been charged with first degree murder in Steed's death.

The Marshals First State Fugitive Task Force is comprised of Deputy United States Marshals and officers from the Delaware State Police, Delaware State Probation and Parole and the New Castle County and Wilmington Police Departments.

Knight is being held at the Howard Young Correctional Institution.
