FLINT, MI – 24-year-old Zachary Bradburn was shot inside the Dawg House Bar in Flint, located at 4619 Fenton Road, just as the bar was closing up early Sunday morning around 2:30 a.m. on July 20th, 2014.
On Wednesday, August 6th, 2014 the Michigan State Police Fugitive Team arrested two suspects, Samuel Burch, 31-years-old and Reco Burch, 19-years-old, cousins, and were charged with Bradburn’s murder.
Last week an additional suspect, Dominic Manuel, 42-years-old, was charged and arraigned for Accessory After the Fact to a Felony, Felon in Possession of a Firearm and Felony Firearm for his role in assisting the Burch cousins after the Murder.
An Accessory after the Fact is an individual who knowingly assists a perpetrator of a crime after the crime has been completed. Even if the perpetrator is not convicted, an individual can be found guilty of being an accessory after the fact as long as the prosecution can prove that the crime occurred, and the individual offered assistance after the crime. An Example of accessory after the fact is a person who assists a wanted felon from hiding from the law. Accessory after the Fact of a felony is usually a 5 year maximum felony under Michigan Compiled Law.
