MIRAMAR, Fla. (AP) - Police in Miramar say a DNA match has solved a 2009 triple slaying and led to murder charges against a man already in state prison.
Investigators said Thursday that DNA found on duct tape links 33-year-old Kevin Lavon Pratt to the killings. Pratt is imprisoned for fleeing and eluding police. Now he will be brought to Broward County to face three counts of murder and one attempted murder count.
Killed in the August 2009 crime were 49-year-old Faith Bisasor, her son 15-year-old Davion Bishop and 15-year-old Nekitta Hamilton. Also shot was 41-year-old Camille Hamilton, who survived. She recently identified him as the shooter in a lineup.
Police say robbery was the apparent motive. The gunman made off with only $80.
No past address or attorney could be located for Pratt.
