A day after one man was charged with allegedly killing a missing Lansing teen, a second man has been charged with allegedly helping to cover up the crime.

Garrett Jay Lifsey has been arraigned in Lansing's 54A District Court with being an accessory after the act of a felony and removing a dead body without a medical examiner's permission.

Court records obtained by News 10 indicate Lifsey, 19, allegedly helped Amadio Julian Gonzalez, also 19, move the body of 17-year-old Treasure Malajai Stewart-Adams to an area in Washtenaw County.

Scott Hughes, an Ingham County Prosecutor's Office spokesman, said online records show Lifsey was arraigned Wednesday.

Gonzalez was charged Tuesday with the following: homicide/open murder, tampering with evidence, felony firearm and removing dead bodies without a medical examiner's permission. Records name Lifsey as a co-defendant.

Police said Stewart-Adams was found dead May 29 in Washtenaw County a day after she was deemed missing and endangered.

Police said Stewart-Adams was last seen May 24 wearing a pink floral outfit in Lansing on the 100 block of Claremore Drive, north of East Miller Road.

Both Gonzalez and Lifsey are are due back in court 8:30 a.m. June 11 for probable cause conferences.

Anyone with information about Stewart-Adams’ death is asked to call police at 517-483-4600 or Det. Brittany Roberts at 517-483-4654.
