Suspect Arrested For Seaford Homicide


A Seaford man has been arrested in connection with an August homicide at The Woodshed Bar and Package Store on Bridgeville Highway.

Delaware State Police say 19-year-old Unique Smith was arrested Monday at an apartment in Salisbury by members of the U.S. Marshals Task Force. Smith had been developed as a suspect in the August 8th shooting death of 28-year-old Jeffrey Akins Junior. Akins died in a hospital of a gunshot to the back.

Troopers found the victim as they investigated reports of a fight in progress.

Smith is charged with first-degree murder, assault and possession of a deadly weapon during commission of a felony. He is in custody in Maryland and will be extradited to Delaware.
