A man was shot and killed in Alabama as he checked the breaker box outside his apartment. Two years later, officials announced a pair of arrests in connection to the cold-case murder.
On July 25, 2019, La’Quintin Brown was shot and killed when he stepped outside to check the switch on his breaker box after he lost power at his apartment, according to the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office.
This week the office announced the arrest of Si’Keris Miles, 21, who was charged in connection to the murder. He is being held on a $150,000 bond.
A second person was also arrested in connection with Brown’s death, but his name and photo have not been released because he’s a juvenile, according to the district attorney's office.
Court documents indicate an attempted robbery or burglary was the motive in the crime, according to WSFA 12.
Since the cold-case task force was created in September 2019, they have solved around a dozen cold case homicides, according to the office.
“The Montgomery County Cold Case Task Force has been very successful, and I am very proud of the team’s outstanding work. Because of this collaborative unit, more families are getting the answers they deserve – the justice their loved one and they deserve," District Attorney Daryl Bailey said in announcing the arrest.
