Yet another gal pal of the Trinidadian man suspected of gunning down his Corrections Officer ex-girlfriend this month has come out of the woodwork, for helping the accused murderer torch a third lover’s car.
Shirley Mejia allegedly helped purported killer, Keon Richmond, set fire to an unnamed ex’s vehicle on October 23, according to court papers.
Mejia was indicted on third-degree arson charges on Wednesday before Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Bruce Balter, where defense attorney Douglas Appel entered a not guilty plea on her behalf.
Richmond, originally from Trinidad, was also named in the indictment, but was not in court, the New York Post reported.
It remains unclear what accelerant the lovebirds used in the East New York fire, sources said.
The 24-year-old woman appeared bored in court on Wednesday, shifting back and forth and playing with her nails as the jurist, Appel, and Assistant District Attorney, Joanna Lettieri discussed the case at the bench.
Mejia was eventually released without bail and declined comment as she scuttled to the elevators.
Richmond, 32, is the main suspect in the fatal shooting of rookie Corrections Officer Alastasia Bryan, who was hit five times as she sat in her car in the Flatlands on December 4.
The homely ladies man was found by cops hiding in a closet ten days later.
A high-ranking member of the Pay Back Crips street gang whose rap sheet boasts 30 prior arrests, Richmond is suspected to have shot Bryan, 25, because she had him collared for stealing her car, sources previously told The Post.
He has yet to be charged with that crime.
