Woman Charged With Misleading Officers In Jones Murder Case
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — A woman accused of lying to police during the investigation into the death of Asiyanna Jones was arraigned on Wednesday.
Dayanlee Bracero-Quirndo, 23, is being charged in Berkshire County Superior Court with two counts of misleading a police officer. She had previously been indicted in the case but failed to appear in court and a warrant was issued for her arrest. Bracero-Quirndo turned herself in to authorities.
She is the fourth person to face charges in relation to the 2017 shooting of the 22-year-old Jones on Dewey Avenue. A grand jury also indicted Carey Pilot, 46, Gary Linen, 39, and Elizabeth Perez, 27, on a charge of first-degree murder. The three are being held without bail. Pilot is facing an additional charge of intimidation of a witness and Perez is facing an additional charge of misleading police.
"The District Attorney's Office will continue to work in partnership with Pittsfield Police Department to hold these individuals responsible for the death of Asiyanna Jones and for obstructing justice," District Attorney Andrea Harrington said in a prepared statement.
Jones was sitting in a vehicle in the area of 242 Dewey Avenue on October 2, 2017, when she was struck in the head by a bullet shortly before 11 p.m.
