GOOCHLAND, VA (WWBT) -
Three suspects are behind bars in Henrico accused of murdering Waynesboro Police reserve Captain Kevin Quick, according to court documents.
Halisi Uhuru, Leslie Hope Casterlow and Anthony Darnell Stokes are charged with capital murder in the death of Quick, according to arrest warrants filed in Goochland. The arrest warrants say the three murdered Quick during an abduction between Monday and Wednesday.
Uhuru is from Danville. Caterlow and Stokes are from Manassas.
They're due back in court on February 10 at 12:30 p.m. State Police have scheduled a press conference at 2 p.m. in Waynesboro.
The Goochland arrests came early Friday and bring the total number of people behind bars to six in connection with the disappearance and murder of the Virginia officer.
Quick went missing one week ago. Virginia State police confirm a body was found Thursday afternoon in a remote area along on the Fluvanna and Goochland county line. Law enforcement sources say the body was found on Old Columbia Road and had been shot.
While law enforcement sources say the body is Quick, State Police officials say they are still working on identifying the body and gathering evidence. They say they will release the name once they have finished identifying the body and notifying next of kin.
Crews searched the area Thursday after receiving a number of tips both in the past 24 hours.
Earlier Thursday, three other people charged in connection with Quick's disappearance appeared in Louisa court.
A judge ordered Daniel Mathis, Shantai Shelton, and Mersadies Shelton held without bond. They were also given court appointed defense attorneys.
The three Albemarle siblings were arrested at an Alexandria hotel Tuesday night. Mersadies Shelton and Daniel Mathis are charged with possession of stolen property/grand larceny for the theft of Quick's Silver 1999 Toyota 4Runner.
Investigators seized a wallet, a box of cigarettes with a green leafy substance and various other items from the SUV, according to search warrants.
Mathis was also arrested on four felony warrants and three misdemeanor warrants in connection with a shooting Sunday in Mineral. Authorities say Mathis drove the missing captain's SUV to a Louisa home Sunday night where he tried to rob a family and shot a teen.
Shantai Shelton was arrested on an unrelated warrant.
A search warrant shows Quick's last communication was two text messages sent to his girlfriend. His Verizon cell phone has been off since 10:52 p.m. Friday. His Discover card hasn't been used since 5:45 p.m. Friday.
Police say Quick left his mother's house in Afton Friday night to go see a woman,with whom he has a four-month-old daughter, 20 miles away at the Turtle Tree apartments in Albemarle. Quick has been legally separated from his wife since 2007, though the divorce was never finalized. However, Quick never made it to the Turtle Tree Apartments, which are less than two miles from where the suspects live, according to police.
Court documents also show Quick was laid off three weeks ago and his severance money hasn't been accounted for.
Quick's SUV was found on Cedar Hill Road in Louisa Monday, not far from where a shooting occurred Sunday night. Police ask anyone who may have noticed any strange cars in the area this weekend to call them with information.
State Police say the silver Toyota 4Runner was also seen in Fork Union Friday and Manassas Saturday.
State Police are also still looking for a man who they believe knows something about the captain's disappearance. They've distributed a surveillance image in the hopes it will lead to new information in the case.
Anyone with information is encouraged to call Virginia State Police at #77 on a cell phone or at (434) 352-7128, or any one of the assisting agencies./blockquote>

WAYNESBORO, Va. – Three people have been charged in the disappearance and death of a reserve Waynesboro police officer, two others are charged in the theft of his vehicle and investigators are looking into a possible gang affiliation, police said Friday.So, for those keeping track:
The latest three were arrested Thursday night in Prince William County, increasing to five the number of people facing charges related to the death of Kevin Wayne Quick, 45.
Police who had been searching for Quick since he was reported missing Saturday found the body of a man about halfway between Richmond and Charlottesville on Thursday, state police spokeswoman Corinne Geller said. An autopsy has not positively identified the body as Quick's, she said.
The three arrested Thursday night are Gert Wright, also known as Halisi Uhuru, 22, of Danville; and Leslie Hope Casterlow, 49, and Anthony D. Stokes Jr., 31, both of Manassas.
They are charged with "principal in second degree to the crime of murder," meaning they have an association with Quick's death, Geller said.
"They have not been charged with capital murder, with any murder, at this time," she said.
Geller said the three were also charged with having an affiliation with a "criminal street gang." She did not identify the gang or elaborate on that part of the investigation.
Two Louisa County siblings previously were charged with grand larceny related to the theft of Quick's SUV. They are Mersadies Shelton, 20, and Daniel Mathis, 18.
All five suspects are being held without bond.
Geller said investigators were "still piecing together this network of individuals."
Police have received more than 200 tips since they began their search for Quick, she said, appealing for more assistance from the public.
Quick was reported missing after he left his mother's residence in Afton to travel to his girlfriend's home in Louisa County late Friday. She lives about 20 miles away.
Quick's vehicle was found Monday in Louisa County. Surveillance cameras recorded his vehicle at two banks before the SUV was discovered.
Waynesville police said Quick was a captain on the reserve force. He had served on the force for 24 years.
