The roughly 90-minute video is at the center of a second-degree murder case that commonwealth’s attorney Ann Cabell Baskervill presented Tuesday morning to a grand jury. Ten people – seven Henrico County sheriff’s deputies and three Central State Hospital employees – were named suspects in Otieno's death.

A grand jury in Dinwiddie County signed off Tuesday on second-degree murder charges for all 10. The seven deputies charged are Jermaine Lavar Branch, 45; Bradley Thomas Disse, 43; Randy Joseph Boyer, 57; Dwayne Alan Bramble, 37; Tabitha Rene Levere, 50; Brandon Edward Rodgers, 48; and Kalyell Dajour Sanders, 30. The hospital employees are Darian M. Blackwell, 23, Wavie L. Jones, 34, and Sadarius D. Williams, 27.

  2. It is ridiculous how officers and even others in health care don’t know that some people can’t ve in a position like this for too long as it affects their respiratory system.

    1. Trust, loyalty and respect are a must for eternal happiness. No matter how much you love someone if you don’t have these

  3. That’s fu**** up! When does it take all that many to stop someone in hand and leg cuffs? We do not have an ordinary ol school police force no more!

  4. As a trans racial birthing person, thank you for the work you do on behalf of our community. 🤎🤎
