Chelsea Braunskill, 19 when arrested, of Camden-Wyoming, Daiquan T. Bordley and Zhyhee Y. Harmon, both 22-year-old Dover residents, were also indicted in Kent County Superior Court on possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and second-degree conspiracy counts.

The Delaware State Police earlier alleged that Mr. Bordley reportedly shot Deontray Hendricks in the torso during an altercation involving a planned robbery of drugs and money.

Authorities alleged Mr. Hendricks picked up Ms. Braunskill at her Delaware State University dormitory and drove her to Port Mahon to smoke marijuana.

Police claimed Ms. Braunskill was aware of the plot to commit the robbery.
In an affidavit of probable cause, police alleged that Mr. Harmon sold a Cobra .380 handgun the day after the shooting death.

In a separate indictment, Mr. Harmon was charged with possession of a firearm by person prohibited, giving a firearm to a person prohibited and unlicensed person selling or transferring a firearm or ammunition to anyone.

According to court documents, Mr. Harmon was convicted of felony drug dealing on Feb. 12, 2014, making him ineligible to possess a firearm.
