Arrest In South Sacramento Homicide

At approximately 12:01 a.m. on 04/11/09, while deputies were at the U.C. Davis Medical Center investigating an unrelated incident, a Black female adult entered the hospital with her husband. She had suffered a gunshot wound and would later die from her injuries.

At the time, the victim’s husband was not cooperative with investigators. After an extensive investigation by Sacramento County Sheriff’s homicide detectives into the facts and circumstances of the case, an arrest warrant was issued for her husband, Marquis LANDERS (DOB: 12-29-83) for the homicide. Landers was arrested near Tracy, after fleeing from the Sacramento area after the homicide.

Also arrested was Demario CHAPPELL (07-07-84), for aiding and abetting Landers by assisting him with his flight out of Sacramento and disposing of evidence of the crime.

The victim has been identified as Katricia BANKS (09/16/83).

The incident appears to be domestic violence-related. Further investigation is still being conducted in this case. Anyone with additional information is encouraged to contact the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department’s Homicide Bureau.
