2 Men Held Without Bail In Jamaica Plain Shooting Death Of Kenneth Lamour

This article is more than 5 years old.

Two suspects charged in connection with the shooting of a man shoveling snow as part of a work crew in Boston in February were ordered held without bail on first-degree murder charges Monday.

Donte Henley and Josiah Zachery were arraigned in Suffolk Superior Court in connection with the Feb. 11 shooting death of 21-year-old Kenneth Lamour.

Lamour was part of a crew organized by an organization that works with at-risk youth shoveling snow in the city's Jamaica Plain neighborhood when he was shot.

Prosecutors say Zachery pulled the trigger, but Henley, who was also with the snow-shoveling crew, ordered the hit. Zachery is also charged with shooting at a police officer who gave chase after Lamour's slaying.

Lawyers for both suspects have said their clients had nothing to do with Lamour's shooting.

The pair are due back in court on June 18.
