Prince George’s County, MD-Police arrest FBI’s Top 10 Most Wanted fugitive and link him to DC killing
A man wanted for five years by the FBI for killing his fiancée in New Jersey is under arrest in Prince George’s County, Maryland.
Lamont Stephenson, 43, was arrested Thursday in Prince George’s County.
Stephenson was wanted since 2014 on charges he murdered of his fiancée in New Jersey. He also allegedly killed her dog in the attack.
In 2015, pictures of Stephenson were aired on a local news station in Virginia, and several people reported they believed they had seen him in the commonwealth. Additionally, multiple sources tell WTOP’s Megan Cloherty that Stephenson is also connected to the deadly stabbing of a woman in her D.C. apartment on Wednesday.
An officer responding to the apartment building on D Street Southeast found 40-year-old Natina Kiah stabbed to death in her bedroom, according to the D.C. police report. A family member called to ask police to check on Kiah, the report said. It’s unclear if Stephenson and Kiah knew each other and how investigators came to identify him so quickly.
Prince George’s County police are expected to share more details in an upcoming press conference later Thursday evening.
