RACINE, Wis. - Terry Jackson Jr., accused of shooting and killing Brittany Booker in Racine over the weekend, is still on the run. However, three women have now been charged with harboring/aiding him in two incidents.
Prosecutors said Booker, a mother of six, is one of two women who Jackson beat in the head multiple times with a hammer on Feb. 27. Police said the encounter almost killed Booker.
Nearly two months after that alleged hammer attack, police found Booker dead in her car near 13th and Villa on April 24 with multiple injuries – including a gunshot wound to the head.
Three women – Alicia Sykes, Carmelita Walker and Diamond Hood – are accused of helping and letting Jackson, who is a felon, stay at their homes.
Investigators said Sykes told them Jackson is her cousin, and he called her and asked for a ride to Texas shortly after the February incident. Police said in early March that Sykes and Walker hopped in the car, traveled from Racine to Chicago, picked up Jackson and dropped him off in Texas. Sykes told police that Jackson returned to Racine shortly after being dropped off in Texas.
Court documents state Hood and Jackson had a relationship, and Hood admitted to law enforcement that she knew Jackson assaulted Booker with a hammer. Hood also told officials she let Jackson use her SUV and stay at her home.
The documents also state Jackson used Hood's SUV in the alleged February hammer attack and the April homicide. She is charged in connection to the homicide, specifically.
