Show Low Police officers have arrested three more suspects in connection with the shooting death of SLPD Officer Darrin Reed, who was killed last November in the line of duty.
Lisa Tuetken, 35, Maria Lies, 32, and Matthew Jacoby, 34, all of Show Low, have each been charged with two counts of first degree murder in connection with the incident.
SLPD Sgt. Shawn Robi stated that this was part of an ongoing investigation into the incident and that no further information is available at this time.
Last December, Jason Michael Hill, 34, of Phoenix and Christopher Talley, 40, of Snowflake were charged with hindering prosecution, child abuse, possession of dangerous drugs for sale, attempted misconduct involving weapons, two counts each of manufacturing of dangerous drugs and possession of dangerous drugs for sale, and four counts of first degree murder in connection with the case.
Both Hill and Talley were allegedly involved in drug activity and as a result of attempting to flee from law enforcement, their accomplice, Daniel Erickson, 36, shot and killed Officer Reed. Erickson was killed by law enforcement after a more than six-hour stand off.
SLPD provided no information regarding the roll Tuetkin, Lies and Jacoby had in the incident.
