DETROIT — A third person has been arraigned in connection with the slaying of a 69-year-old Detroit auto parts store manager.

The Wayne County prosecutor’s office says 28-year-old Eboni McEwen-Ross appeared in court Thursday on murder and armed robbery charges.

Prosecutors last week charged 23-year-old Shawnta Anderson and 39-year-old Leviticus Butler in the Nov. 1 slaying of James Haller Jr. at the O’Reilly store on Detroit’s west side.

Anderson is charged with murder, armed robbery and using a firearm during a felony. Butler is charged with being an accessory after the fact. Both have probable cause conferences scheduled for Tuesday and Nov. 28 preliminary examinations.

McEwen-Ross has a Nov. 29 probable cause conference and Dec. 6 preliminary examination.
