The mother of a Toledo murder suspect allegedly offered to pay $100 to the man pursuing aggravated robbery charges against her son.
Lashasha Allen, 40, of Toledo, is charged with bribery. She was arrested Tuesday and booked into the Lucas County jail. On Wednesday Allen was arraigned in Toledo Municipal Court and released on a supervised own recognizance bond.
Allen is accused of offering $100 to James Howard to drop charges against her son, Quincy Allen, on May 16.
Quincy, 22, is locked up in the Lucas County jail awaiting trial for murder.
He is accused of shooting to death La'Quan Dunbar, 20, who was killed April 19 at the Gas & Go station at Council and Detroit in the central city.
Quincy was indicted by a Lucas County grand jury on two counts of murder, each with a firearm specification, and also charged with one count of aggravated robbery.
In the robbery, police allege that Quincy and his “best friend” Fred Watson robbed a man who offered to give the pair a ride on May 15.
Watson, 21, was also indicted on the aggravated robbery charge, but he was shot and killed June 16 at Avondale and Brown avenues.
