Suspect charged in Huber Heights homicide

A man already in jail in connection with several area robberies is now facing a murder charge in the death of a Huber Heights man last year.

Jesse Stinson has been charged with murder and several other felonies in the death of Tyree Demetrius North.

The Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office approved three counts of murder, two counts of aggravated robbery, two counts of felonious assault, and one count each of aggravated burglary and having weapons under disability against Stinson on Thursday, spokesman Greg Flannagan confirmed.

In November, the Dayton Daily News confirmed Stinson had been questioned by Huber Heights Police in connection to North’s death and that he’d been the subject of several search warrants.

One of those searches, at 130 S. Garfield St. in Dayton on Nov. 20, resulted in charges against Stinson and his cousin, Gerry Stinson, related to several robberies.

Both men have been in jail since that day.

Jesse Stinson, 27, has been indicted on charges of kidnapping, aggravated robbery and felonious assault in connection with a robbery at Bob’s Wine Store on East Third Street in Dayton on Oct. 25. He is also facing charges out of Springfield alleging he and another individual robbed Rolfe’s Jewelers at gunpoint on Sept. 8.

Gerry Stinson, 28, is charged with complicity to commit aggravated robbery at the Dayton Smoke Shop on Linden Avenue on Nov. 10. He has not been implicated in connection with North’s death.

Huber Heights Police have said very little about the investigation into North’s death and could not be reached for comment on the charges Friday.

North was found shot to death in his home, 8180 Mt. Charles Lane, on Oct. 10. His girlfriend found him unconscious in the hallway of the single-story ranch residence. He had a gunshot wound to the back of his head and multiple items, including a HP laptop were missing from the home.
