SALISBURY, Md. - Two suspects have been arrested on Tuesday and more arrests are expected in connection with the murder of a man two days ago in Wicomico County.
The suspects are identified as 39-year-old Brandi Upshur and 23-year-old Genequa Winder, both of Salisbury. Both suspects are charged with first degree murder, second degree murder, conspiracy to commit first and second degree murder, first degree assault, second degree assault and reckless endangerment. Both are being held in the Wicomico County Detention Center.
Both suspects are charged in connection with the murder of 32-year-old Tavin Molock of Salisbury. Molock was found injured in the 400 Block of Bethel Street by responding Salisbury Police Department officers shortly before 11:30 a.m. on July 30. Molock later died at the hospital.
An autopsy confirmed the manner of his death was a homicide. The cause of death is being withheld by investigators at this time due to its importance to the ongoing investigation.
The Maryland State Police Homicide Unit investigation led to the identification of the two suspects. Investigators say that Molock was assaulted by several people while he was on foot in the 400 Block of Bethel Street in Salisbury.
A motive for the murder is under investigation. The Homicide Unit investigation is continuing. More arrests are anticipated. Investigative help is being provided by the Salisbury Police Department, the drug task forces from Wicomico and Dorchester Counties and the Maryland State Police Gang Enforcement Unit.
