Richmond Police detectives need the public’s help to find Charles Benjamin Kirby in connection with a Southside homicide last month.

Charles Benjamin Kirby, 24, of no fixed address, is wanted for conspiracy to commit murder in connection with the shooting death of Marcus Williams on July 17 in the 4600 block of Southwood Parkway.
