3 men indicted in 2017 slaying of Plano man inside his garage



PLANO, TX – A Collin County grand jury indicted three men on capital murder charges in the 2017 slaying of a Plano man in his garage.

Ladarus Demarquis Earl Keys, 27, Christopher Jamond Walker, 28, and Jacob Anthony Malin, 27, are accused in the shooting death of Christopher Collinvitti.

Police say Collinvitti was shot at his home in the 7900 block of Case Drive as he was getting out of his truck around 9 p.m. on Nov. 7, 2017.

At the time, police said it was a “suspicious death” without a clear motive. When the three men were arrested in July, police said he was slain during a robbery.

Keys is being held in the Collin County Jail in lieu of $2 million bail. He also faces charges in Dallas County for unlawful possession of a firearm and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, according to jail records.

Walker is also being held in the Collin County Jail in lieu of $1 million bail. When he was arrested in connection with Collinvitti’s murder, Walker was in the Tarrant County Jail on a misdemeanor family violence charge.

Malin is in custody at the Yazoo City Federal Correctional Institution in Mississippi after pleading guilty to a federal firearms charge in 2018. Inmate records show he was set to be released in March 2022.
