White Couple Killed Black Man Over Supposed Drug Deal Gone Bad


By The New York Daily News

Mia Shamis, 19, and Connor Jeffries, 21, were arrested Wednesday, a day after Jeffries fatally shot two men the couple knew well in a parking lot on Columbus’ Far East Side, according to the Columbus Division of Police.

A judge on Thursday set bond at $1 million or more for both Jeffries and Shamis, who has posed in short shorts and a spaghetti strap top and other outfits in modeling images on Facebook.

Video from the courtroom from WBNS-TV showed the jail uniform-clad Shamis with a horrified expression on her face during her hearing. Jeffries, who is on a precautionary safety watch in jail, appeared in court wearing a blanket over his body, according to The Columbus Dispatch.

Police identified the couple’s victims as Gary Ashton Francis, 20, and James Earl Miller Jr., 21. All four people involved in the broad-daylight shooting graduated from high school in 2013 and 2014 in the Pickerington Local School District, about 20 miles east of downtown Columbus, the Dispatch reported.

“This incident has been a tragedy for the family and friends of everyone involved,” Superintendent Valerie Browning-Thompson said in a statement. “Our thoughts and prayers are with them during this difficult time. We have let our students know that if they wish to discuss their thoughts or feelings about this with someone, we have trained counselors available at both high schools.”
