Arrest In Miami Murders

A phone tip led to the arrest of a 24-year-old man in the murders last month of Miami linebacker Marlin Barnes and friend Timwanika Lumpkins in a campus apartment.

The 22-year-old students were beaten to death with a shotgun by Labrant Deshawn Dennis, Lumpkins’ former boyfriend and the father of her 3-year-old daughter, police said.

The shotgun was recovered from a culvert under Interstate 95 just north of Miami following the tip Monday to Crime Stoppers of Dade County, said Carlos Alvarez of Metro-Dade police.
