Arrest made in connection to Toledo homicide case
TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - Police have made an arrest in connection to a homicide last week but not for the suspect they say killed a Toledo man.
Treashia Lampkin was arrested Wednesday on charges of obstructing justice after the fatal shooting of 27-year-old Mario Kea II last week.
Police have not identified a suspect responsible for Kea’s death, but believe it to be a black male that was seen exiting Lampkin’s vehicle on video and by witnesses.
The obstruction charges for Lampkin stem from her telling police that she arrived alone to confront Kea about an issue with their kids.
That incident took place on the 400 block of Pontiac Street on July 21, where police found Kea suffering from at least one gunshot wound. He was taken to the hospital where he later died, marking the city’s 37th homicide of 2021.
