Naomi Drive murder suspect captured in New York

Local News

A Dothan murder suspect captured by U.S. Marshals more than a thousand miles away in Suffolk County, New York.

23-year-old Tayshawn Malik Stevenson, the Dothan man wanted for killing 27-year-old Akheem Benjamin Hall back in June, is now behind bars.

Stevenson has been on the run since June 9th.

That’s the night he allegedly gunned down Hall in the front yard of his Naomi Drive home.

Investigators believe Stevenson’s mother, 39-year-old Tiffany Robbin Rowell, is also involved in Hall’s murder…

She was arrested on June 11th and charged with conspiracy to commit murder.

Rowell was allegedly involved in an altercation with Hall earlier that day on June 9th.

According to U.S. Marshals, Stevenson awaits extradition to Alabama to face a murder charge.

Capt. Will Benny Dothan Police Department says,”That’ll depend on New York laws and what hearings he’s entitled to. But basically he’ll either waive extradition, or we will extradite him back to Alabama.”

Stevenson was also arrested last October for allegedly holding his girlfriend’s face under scalding hot water at a Dothan hotel.

She suffered severe burns.

Court records a jury trial for that case is scheduled for late September.
