Roger Parker, Jr. to be represented by public defender

A 16-year old, accused in the fatal shooting last month of a Quincy man, now has an attorney after a hearing Monday. 

Roger Parker, Jr was in Adams County Circuit Court for a hearing with counsel. He had said last week at a hearing that he'd hire an attorney, and that he had already done so, but the attorney wasn't able to be at the hearing, due to a court conflict. However on Monday, Parker, Jr. was appointed a public defender. The teen will be back in court Tuesday morning for a preliminary hearing. He's been charged as an adult with three counts of 1st Degree Murder in the death of 18-year old Darrell Kelley, Jr. of Quincy. Police say they were called just before 5 PM September 26th to the 600 block of Sycamore on the report of shots fired. When officers arrived, they found Kelley lying in the street, with multiple gun-shot wounds. Kelley died later that night at Blessing Hospital.  

Parker is in the Adams County Juvenile Detention Center on $5 million bond.
