Second suspect charged in July homicide of U-M medical student

A second South Carolina man was arraigned Tuesday on a charge of open murder in the death of Medical School student Paul DeWolf.

Joei A. Jordan, 20, of Sumter, S.C., was arraigned in 14A District Court on one charge of open murder, two charges of first-degree home invasion and one charge of conspiracy to commit home invasion.

Jordan is the second of three suspects to face charges in the case. Shaquille A. K. Jones, 21, was arraigned Nov. 22 on the same charges. The third person has not yet been arraigned.

The charges were announced in a press release from Ann Arbor Police Chief John Seto and Washtenaw County Prosecuting Attorney Brian Mackie.

DeWolf, 25, was a second lieutenant in the U.S. Air Force. He was found shot to death in his apartment in the 200 block of North Ingalls Street in July.

According to the release, one home invasion charge pertains to an offense committed at 210 N. Ingalls St., and the other pertains to an offense at 220 N. Ingalls St.

The Washtenaw County Public Defender’s Office has been appointed to represent Jordan. A preliminary examination in court has been scheduled for Dec. 12.
