    The Burlington Police Department has arrested a third man in the 2017 death of a southeast Iowa man.

    According to a press release, Andrea Harris, 28, was arrested by US Marshals in Illinois on February 8th.

    Harris has since been extradited to Burlington and charged with 1st-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder in the case.

    The warrants stem from the September 10, 2017 death of Demarcus Antonio Chew.

    Harris is currently being held on a $2,000,000.00 bond pending a court appearance.

    According to court records, a group of men followed Chew home from a Gulfport bar on September 10th, 2017. He was shot several times behind his mother’s apartment on North 5th Street.

    Another man, Derrick Parker, 44, has also been charged with 1st-degree murder and conspiracy to commit a forcible felony in the killing.

    A third man, Antoine Spann, 30, was also charged in the murder.

    He accepted a plea deal to testify against others involved in exchange for dropping 1st-degree murder charges against him. He pleaded guilty to willful injury, conspiracy to commit murder and participating in a gang grim charges and received a 20-year prison sentence.
