3rd man charged

A third man has been charged in the card game killing last weekend.

The Enquirer-Journal has the story. It contains a tidbit that they weren't playing poker as I had originally assumed or read, likely the former. A snippet:
Quenthoney Kegan Black, 22, of 9931 Waxhaw Highway, Waxhaw, has been charged with first-degree murder and discharging firearm into an occupied dwelling. Black was taken into custody at his residence without incident after investigators obtained a warrant for his arrest, according a Union County Sheriff’s Office prepared release.


Tonk is a version of gin rummy that was popular among jazz musicians in the 1930s and 1940s. Writing on the games website, John McLeod warns, “many players seem certain that their own way of playing is the only correct one. Before starting a game with unfamiliar players, it is wise first to agree what house rules are in force.”
Read the whole thing.

He, along with the initial two suspects, is charged with first-degree murder. Could bullets from all three guns have hit Michael Garlins? I've seen nothing to suggest police have released any kind of ballistics test or even if they have got the guns that the three suspects apparently were firing into the mobile home.

For more information on tonk, here's the rules page referred to in the article.
