SYCAMORE – Bond was set at $15,000 Thursday for a woman who police say tried to conceal evidence from the scene of a gang-related beating in February 2010.
Karissa T. Marsh, 20, of the 1300 block of Sunrise Drive in DeKalb, was charged with concealing evidence after she retrieved a handgun from the crime scene and hid it in her car before fleeing the area in “furtherance of gang-related activity,” according to court documents.
Court files say Marsh attempted to obstruct the prosecution of Corey Frazier of DeKalb, who pleaded guilty in June 2010 to aggravated battery and was sentenced to two years in prison and $5,600 in restitution.
Frazier was one of six men and two juveniles charged in the 2010 gang-related beating in DeKalb that left one victim with a broken collarbone and caused another to lose an eye.
The eight were inside a house in the 800 block of Oak Street when the two victims, members of a rival gang, walked by the house, flashing gang signs and shouting insults as they passed, according to police.
Police said the eight came out of the house and attacked the two men in the street.
Marsh is charged with obstructing justice, which is punishable by two to five years in prison. She was appointed a public defender and is set to appear again in court July 12.
