Suspect's cousin arrested in connection to H.S. student's murder
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -
The cousin of a teenage murder suspect was taken into police custody Saturday in connection to the fatal shooting that claimed the life of a 17-year-old high school student.
Nicholas Goodner is accused of trying to hide his relative, Eric Goodner from authorities.
Seventeen-year-old Eric Goodner was wanted by police for shooting and killing Pearl Cohn High School student Johnathan Johnson moments after he left his home for the bus stop on the morning of April 11.
Eric Goodner was taken into police custody on Wednesday at the Village Place complex.
Authorities said the teen had been staying at the complex since at least April 27.
Nicholas Goodner has been charged with accessory after the fact.
He has since been released on a $10,000 bond.
Nicholas Goodner's girlfriend Quantrese Upkins was arrested on Friday in connection to the shooting death of Johnson.
Upkins told police that Nicholas Goodner asked her if Eric Goodner could stay with them.
She is charged with being an accessory after the fact.
Both Upkins and Nicholas Goodner are scheduled to be in court June 4.
