DINWIDDIE, Va. (WRIC) — The Dinwiddie County Sheriff’s Department announced Thursday that two arrests have been in the nearly two-year-old murder of Corey Vann Mills.
32-year-oldy Cowarren Nathaniel Wiggins of the 25000 block of Greensville Avenue, North Dinwiddie, VA was charged with first degree murder, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, conspiracy to commit first degree murder and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
26-year-old Trenton Lamar Wiggins of the 25000 block of Front Road, North Dinwiddie, VA was charged with first degree murder, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony and conspiracy to commit first degree murder.
Cowarren Wiggins was incarcerated on unrelated charges prior to being charged in Corey Mills’ death while Trenton Wiggins was arrested on February 20, 2015.
Both individuals are being held at Meherrin River Regional Jail pending their appearances in Dinwiddie County Circuit Court.
On Sunday, April 7, 2013 at approximately 10:15 p.m., Dinwiddie County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the 25000 block of Dinwiddie Avenue in the West Petersburg area of the county for the report of a subject being shot. Upon arrival, officers found the body of 30-year-old Vann Mills of that same block of Dinwiddie Avenue lying beside the roadway dead of an apparent gunshot wound.
According to Sheriff D.T. Adams, just because arrests have been made in the case does not mean the investigation is over.
This investigation will continue to move forward and continued assistance from the public and work by the investigators will be needed to bring this case to a positive conclusion.
“I hope these arrests will give the Mills’ family some closure in the tragic death of Corey,” Adams said in a release.
