3 Men Alleged In 2020 Baltimore Brothers Murder, says Frosh – CBS Baltimore

BALTIMORE (WJZ) – Three men have been indicted in the deaths of brothers Cordelle and Cornelius Bruce, who were murdered within a week in 2020, Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh said Tuesday.

On January 14, 2020, Cordelle Bruce was fatally shot in section 1100 of E. Belvedere Ave. in the Glen Oaks neighborhood.

Six days later, the body of his brother, Cornelius, was found in a burning car behind Lake Clifton High School. Investigators determined he was fatally shot before the vehicle was set on fire.

Christopher Brown, 21 years old; Daran Horton, 22 years old; and Jimmy Murphy, 27, have been charged with first-degree murder, arson, gun crime and other counts, Frosh’s office said.

Prosecutors allege Brown and Horton had a dispute with Cordelle Bruce over a voidable marijuana transaction while at the Alameda Mall. Soon after, prosecutors allege, “Brown, Horton, and another individual hunted down Cordelle Bruce” and shot him dead, Frosh’s office said.

Cornelius Bruce invited Murphy and another man to avenge his brother’s death, prosecutors said.

According to court documents, Murphy allegedly attacked Brown on the 1000 block of Reverdy Road and, during the melee, shot Cornelius Bruce. He was charged with altering evidence after allegedly causing a black Ford F-150 with Bruce’s body inside to catch fire in the 2800 block of St. Lo Drive.

Frosh said: “It is tragic to see how five young lives could be wasted through gun violence, but we are grateful for the hard work of our law enforcement partners that has resulted in this allegation and those who defend our community at their own risk.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the Baltimore City Police Department, and the Organized Crime Unit of the Maryland Attorney General’s Office have led a joint investigation into the killings.

Investigators are still looking for Horton, who is described as 5 feet to 5 feet tall and weighs 200 pounds. He is known to frequent the Alameda Mall, the site of the illicit deal with Cordelle Bruce.
