Investigators learned Tykeil Fleming was visiting a woman at the complex, Sharlize Burgos, and she was also a suspect in the incident. But Burgos fled to New Jersey before police could speak to her.

Last week she was arrested in New Jersey and charged with both accessory before the fact of murder and accessory after the fact of murder.
