Three accused of killing shop owner

BELLEVILLE (AP) – Illinois State Police say three men are accused in last year’s shooting death of a man in his East St. Louis beauty supply store.

Twenty-one-year-old Travion Wells, 20-year-old John Paraham and 18-year-old Ernest Whitley Jr. are charged in St. Clair County with first-degree murder. Whitley also is charged with conspiracy to commit armed robbery.

State police say Abdulaziz Al-Hakim was shot to death in October 2013 at his Beauty Royal Supply Store during an attempted robbery.

Wells, Paraham and Whitley do not have listed home telephone numbers, and online court records do not show whether they have attorneys.
