The leaseholder of an apartment where accused killer Eric Goodner was found on Wednesday was also arrested by North Precinct detectives on Friday.
Quantrese Leyta Upkins is accused of harboring Goodner, who eluded police for three weeks. According to police, Upkins, 31, is the girlfriend of Goodner’s cousin, Nicholas Antonio Goodner. Officers and detectives have charged Nicholas Goodner with being an accessory after the fact and are working to get him into custody.
“It is the police department’s view that these two persons contributed to fear and concern in the community by allegedly assisting Eric Goodner avoid capture,” Metro Nashville Police Department Chief Steve Anderson said.
“At a time when police officers and citizens throughout Nashville were on the lookout for Goodner, it appears these two persons were helping him despite intense publicity about his fugitive status. We believe they, too, should be held accountable.”
Eric Goodner is accused of shooting Johnathan Johnson, a student from Pearl-Cohn High School, on April 11. He was arrested on Wednesday.
