Accused gunman pleads not guilty in Grande Circle homicide

FAIRFIELD — One of the two alleged gunmen in the deadly April 11 Grande Circle shootout pleaded not guilty Wednesday to murder and attempted murder charges.

Danny Jeffreys, 19, and his defense attorney Leslie Prince were ordered to return to court May 27 for a probable cause hearing.

Jeffreys had been on the run since shortly after the shooting that killed Tereaun Berry and wounded an unidentified 25-year-old man from Vacaville. Berry, 26, also from Vacaville, was shot multiple times in an afternoon dispute between two groups in the street and in the parking lot of a Grande Circle apartment complex.

Jeffreys was arrested last week in Memphis, Tenn. He was brought back to California and was booked into the Solano County jail over the weekend.

Authorities are still looking for a second suspected gunman, Timothy J. Mitchell III, 20.

Donald R. Hill Jr., 24, Darren J. McFadden, 19, and Trayvon L. Wayfer, 19, all of Fairfield, have all pleaded not guilty to murder and attempted murder charges. The trio are expected to be back in court June 13 when a date may be set for their probable cause hearing.

    4 shooters, only one person died, and still only two people hit. The "thugs" are a joke, but way to go Solano County, getting him a real lawyer, instead of a public pretender. Yes, I know, I don't know whether he hired her or you did, but I do know the county will give it's repeat offenders top notch representation, at the tax payers expense. These were losers shooting other losers. The victim was a repeat criminal. The only people I care about are the innocent people who live there, and have to deal with these children running around with guns.

    Is there s way for us to know who is paying for his attorney / legal fees? I'm asking because I don't know the answer.

    Usually, when there are multiple codefendants , the county has to appoint a lawyer from the Conflict Defender's office. They are usually private lawyers who take the case at something really cheap like $1500 a client or something like that. Considering if you called up Leslie Prince's office and asked her to defend you on a homicide charge, she would probably tell you $50,000 down and she wants a house as collateral, this guy's getting one hell of a free lawyer. Not sure if she was assigned from the Conflict Defenders office, but I don't see this guy doing shootings in the 'hood and having $50k and a house to put up, maybe Jess should check into that for us???

    Im sure he has family like you people and when you feel your family needs help you come together and put money up for his defence...that is if you feel he has a fighting chance, are u you two acually slow enough to think that these kids were all alone in this world?? Yikes!! You two should be smarter than that...SMH

    HERE IS YOUR EDUCATION FOLKS, In multi defendant cases or in cases where the public defender has a conflict, the case is forwarded to the Alternate Defenders office. If they have a conflict then one of the attorneys with the private bar is appointed. The attorneys are paid $75 per hour or $100 per hour if its a homicide case or a charge that carries a life sentence. He is very lucky to have Leslie.

    @Educator-That sounds about right, considering Leslie bills at $300 an hour , he's doing good.

    Thank you boom and educator. I use to be one of those people who didn't pay attention to this stuff so I'm not up on a lot. Thanks to many of the people who comment here I have started to pay more attention so I ask questions of some of the people who comment here because I feel they know more than I do. But.. cher you comment did not make any sense to me. No one said anything about them being alone but I seriously doubt their families are going to pay for any of this.

    Instead of worrying who is paying for the defense team we should be happy we will no longer have to pay for Tereauns many public defender services.
