BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - The man accused of killing a 13-year-old girl had his felony hearing waived Tuesday. DarShawn Morris, 21, was scheduled for a felony hearing Tuesday afternoon. The hearing was waived and the case is being sent to an Erie County Grand Jury. He is charged with murder in the death of 13-year-old LaNasha Rollerson.

Buffalo Police Commissioner Daniel Derenda said, “He removed the body from the apartment. The body was found, as I said, yesterday in the 100 block of Newburgh Avenue. He also moved some evidence and had some other things, he tried to cover up initially”
