SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WHEC) — A fourth person has been charged in connection with the death of a missing Greece man earlier this year
Aziz Adams, 19, is charged with concealment of a human corpse, tampering with physical evidence, second- and third-degree criminal possession of a weapon, and resisting arrest.
The charges stem from a homicide investigation after 43-year-old Maximillian Cook was found dead on the property of a vacant home on Dearborn Place in Syracuse back in March.
Aries Ash, 30, and Charisse Walton, 36, both of North Rose, are charged with second-degree murder in the case. Lamor Britton, 24, of Syracuse, is also facing charges of tampering with physical evidence, criminal possession of a weapon and hindering prosecution.
Adams allegedly helped the other suspects dismember Cook in the basement of the vacant house.
Troopers took Adams into custody in Syracuse on Tuesday after a short foot case in Syracuse. Investigators say Adams had a loaded hand gun which had the serial numbers removed from it.
Adams is in the Onondaga County Justice Center awaiting arraignment.
