Sonora, CA — A few more details have surfaced about the man who stands accused of a killing a Big Oak Flat man in his home along Black Road Monday.
According to Sgt. Andrea Benson, Elton Quintin Redick, the 42-year-old man now charged with first-degree murder in the death of the victim, Marc DeJong, was living on the property near DeJong at the time of the crime but is originally from Florida. A name search indicates a man with Redick’s exact name and age as being from Pensacola.
