Seventh Suspect Arrested in Hobson Homicide
On November 9, Carter was arrested for second-degree murder and second-degree robbery, with a to-be-set bond. He was transported to the Boone County Jail. Carter provided a post Miranda statement implicating himself in this incident. Carter admitted that he assaulted the victim with a bottle.
Police have arrested six other suspects. They are Leo Roland, Tony Lewis, Deshon Houston, Daron Peal, Darrin Peal, and Anthony Carr.
Investigators identified Daron Peal as the suspect who pulled the trigger on Hobes. Regardless, all seven suspects are charged with robbery and murder.
"Due to being involved in the felony, someone is injured or murdered or there's weapons violations, you can be charged with those charges as well, especially the murder charge," Jill Weineke, Public Information Officer, said. "That's what's happened in this case is that even though the other six people didn't pull the trigger, they were still involved in a felony that resulted in the murder of Aaron Hobes."
Weineke said investigators still need to talk with a handful of other people.
"If they determine or someone comes in and says that they were involved, they may or may not be arrested based on how the interview goes," Weineke said.
Weineke said this may or may not be the final suspect arrested for the felony.
