Man, 22, found dead on Eastern Shore was killed in Baltimore County, body moved

Court documents in the killing of a missing Baltimore man whose body was found on the Eastern Shore last week show he was fatally stabbed in Baltimore County while with friends, who later moved his body.

Damon Jennings, 22, a stylist, was reported to have been last seen Oct. 15 with friends leaving a restaurant in Baltimore County, and was missing for two weeks until his body was found Friday on a rural roadside in Eden, Md.

Those friends have now been charged in his killing. Elijah Carroll, 22, and Jazzmine Morton, 21, are charged with first-degree murder and they are being held without bond in Baltimore County. State police said a third person, Kevin Nixon, 22, was charged with accessory after the fact to second-degree murder and is being held in Somerset County on $100,000 bond.

In court documents, police wrote that a wire transfer receipt in Nixon's name was found with Jennings' body. Nixon told investigators that the group was together when Carroll asked Nixon to pull over his vehicle in the area of Warren and Poplar Hill roads in Phoenix, Md.

Ever since the arrival of Facebook, the meaning of "friend" has become warped.
