Spokane man’s accused killer surrenders

A man sought on a nationwide warrant in a June beating death of a Spokane man in Missoula, Mont., has turned himself in in Tacoma.

David Sekou Hylton, 39, of Tacoma, surrendered Tuesday night, according to the Pierce County Sheriff's Office.

Hylton (pictured right) has been sought on a charge of deliberate homicide in the death of Angelo Lorenzo Fuentes, 41.

A coroner's report said Fuentes (pictured left) died of blunt force trauma to the head. He was found outside the Elks Lodge in Missoula during a hip-hop show there.

 The incident led to a felony warrant being issued for his nephew, Stafone Fuentes, after his unauthorized trip out of the state was publicized because he was arrested at the hospital where his uncle was pronounced dead.

Coincidentally, the concert tour featured rapper John “Lil Danger” Castro, who was arrested for second-degree murder for allegedly shooting another rapper to death at a Spokane hotel Nov. 27.

Stafone Fuentes was at the hotel and involved in the fight that led to the shooting, Spokane police allege. He is wanted on a first-degree assault charge.
