Virginia State Police announced that Alexandria resident Derrick R. Adjei has been arrested and charged in both a homicide in Richmond and a police pursuit along I-95 that followed.
Adjei is charged with the murder of Kyle Stoner, a local artist and cook who was killed outside of City Dogs restaurant, WTVR reported.
Virginia State Police said in a release that around 11 p.m. on Sunday, July 3, a trooper observed Adjei’s Toyota 4Runner traveling north at around 101 mph.
“The trooper activated his emergency lights and sirens to initiate a traffic stop on Interstate 95 near the 127 mile marker in Spotsylvania County,” the release said. “The Toyota refused to stop and, instead, accelerated and sped away from the trooper. A pursuit was initiated and continued north through Stafford County and into Prince William County, with the Toyota passing vehicles on the shoulder and traveling in excess of 100 mph.”
Adjei tried to exit in Lorton and head toward Route 1, but most control of the vehicle and ran off the road, striking a utility pole and then a tree.
“The driver, Derrick R. Adjei, 24, of Alexandria, Va., was taken into custody,” the release said. “He was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment of minor injuries sustained in the crash. Adjei was then transported to Rappahannock Regional Jail. A firearm was recovered from the Toyota.”
Police said further investigation connected Adjei with Richmond police’s homicide investigation.
“State police charged Adjei with one felony count of eluding police and for reckless driving,” the release said. “Further investigation resulted in the state police making contact with the City of Richmond Police concerning that agency’s ongoing homicide investigation.”
