OAKLAND -- One man has been charged with murder and three other people as accessories in the Oct. 7, 2012, fatal shooting of a Pittsburg man whose body was found wrapped in fabric in the back seat of his car near an East Oakland park, police said Wednesday.

Kenyus Walker, 33, of Oakland, is charged with killing Billy Brooks Jr., 39, during an argument in a house in the 2300 block of 80th Avenue, Officer Eric Milina said. It was not clear what the argument was about.

Walker was arrested Tuesday in East Oakland and is being held without bail. He has denied involvement in the killing, Milina said.

Police said that after Brooks was killed, three other people at the house drove his body in his car to the 2400 block of Ritchie Street near Arroyo Viejo Park where he was found about 5 p.m. Oct. 7.

They were identified by police as Karnell Marshall, 41, his girlfriend, Tameka Tolliver, 38, and Anthony Allen, 49, all of Oakland. They were arrested March 14 and have each been charged with being an accessory to a felony. They are being held on bails ranging from $70,000 to $20,000.

Milina said police were led to the suspects by a witness who had information about the killing.

Police previously said Brooks used to live in East Oakland and that he had a daughter and was a salesman for Comcast.
