Two Detroit men, both 26, face first-degree murder charges in the Nov. 26 slaying of a man on the city's east side.

Neither man has yet been arraigned, according to court records. One lives on the same street where the homicide took place.

Two suspects have been charged in the November 26 slaying of a man on Detroit's east side.


It was just after 2 p.m. when Joseph Bond Jr., 42, was found shot and killed in the area of Rossiter and Britain, south of Morang and west of Cadieux on the east side.

Police sent out a public bulletin at the time looking for information. Court records identify the suspects as Demetrius Moore and Tyree Bentley.

The suspects' home addresses are a short distance from one another and near the location Bond was killed.

While both suspects face one count of first-degree murder and one count of felony murder, Moore faces additional charges of felony firearm and possession of a firearm by a felon, records show.
