A couple was charged Monday with several felonies after they invaded the home of another couple and held a man at gunpoint.

Jada Campbell, 20, Racine, was charged with burglary and physical abuse of a child – intentionally causing bodily harm. If convicted of both charges, she faces up to 18 years six months in prison and/or fines up to $35,000.

Kerrion Marsh, 21, Racine, was charged with armed burglary, possession of a firearm by a felon, pointing a firearm at another, and disorderly conduct (use of a dangerous weapon). Marsh was also charged as a repeat offender. If convicted of all charges, he faces up to 50 years six months in prison and/or fines up to $86,000.

Dispute sparked by car sale

According to the criminal complaint, Campbell and Marsh bought a car from a resident in the 3600 Block of Tenth Avenue. Displeased with how the sale went, the couple went inside the family’s home while armed and demanded that they be reimbursed.

Officers responded to the home for a report of armed individuals forcing their way into the home. Marsh held a gun to the head of one of the residents. When they arrived, they saw Campbell walking in the middle of the road. A man fled the scene on foot and the resident walked out of the house saying that Marsh was still armed inside the home.

Officers with the Racine Police Department found Marsh hiding inside the home. He had a loaded semi-automatic handgun with him at the time of his arrest.

Marsh accused of pointing gun at man

The man Marsh pointed the gun at told police that his aunt called him saying that a number of people were inside her home demanding to know where he lived. Once they learned where he lived, the couple went to the man’s house. They kicked in the door, pushed him down and put a gun to his head. They demanded to know where the money was in the house.

A witness told police she sold the car to Marsh and Campbell on March 26. When they came to her home she heard banging on her front door. She and her two-year-old son hid in the bathroom.  Hearing her boyfriend fighting with Marsh and Campbell, the man stood outside the bathroom to protect the woman and child.

He then lured Campbell and Marsh into their living room, which is where they held a gun to his head and demanded their money back. Campbell also pepper sprayed a 14-year-old girl who was sleeping when she woke up by banging at the door. Rescue personnel took the girl to the hospital for her injuries, according to the criminal complaint.

Campbell told police she was angry the man had sold her a car with a bad title.

Bond set, next court appearance

Racine County Court Commissioner Alice Rudebusch set a cash bond of $7,500 for Marsh. She also set a $750 signature bond for Campbell, who posted bond Tuesday morning. Marsh remains in police custody at the Racine County Jail.

Marsh and Campbell are expected back in court at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday for a preliminary hearing.
