GREENS­BORO — One man has been ar­rested and charged with first- and sec­ond-de­gree mur­der af­ter po­lice said he al­legedly stabbed to death another man and then fled in the vic­tim’s car early Thurs­day, March 29.

Kevin Parker, 25, of the 100 block of W. Sun­set Av­enue in Greens­boro, was ar­rested around 8:30 a.m. March 29 at a home in Delaware, about eight hours af­ter po­lice re­sponded to the scene of the fa­tal stab­bing, also in the 100 block of W. Sun­set Av­enue in Greens­boro, Mary­land State Po­lice said.

Po­lice iden­ti­fied the vic­tim as Howard Lan­man III, 26, of Greens­boro, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

Po­lice said an of­fi­cer from the Greens­boro Po­lice Depart­ment was the first to re­spond to the scene at 12:30 a.m., where he found Lan­man ly­ing in the street with an ob­vi­ous stab wound. The Mary­land State Po­lice Homi­cide Unit also re­sponded.

Po­lice ad­min­is­tered life-sav­ing ef­forts un­til Caro­line County Emer­gency Med­i­cal Ser­vices per­son­nel ar­rived, who pronounced Lan­man dead.

Po­lice think the sus­pect, Parker, fled in a gray 2015 Kia Op­tima, with Mary­land tag 4BR7760, re­port­edly stolen from Lan­man. The car was last seen leav­ing the area of 422 W. Sun­set Street in Greens­boro, head­ing to­ward Den­ton. Po­lice are try­ing to find the stolen car.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors from the Mary­land State Ap­pre­hen­sion Team ar­rested Parker in Delaware. He is in cus­tody and will be ex­tra­dited to Mary­land.

Po­lice ask any­one with in­for­ma­tion regarding the stolen ve­hi­cle or the in­ves­ti­ga­tion to contact the Eas­ton Bar­rack at 410-822-3101. Callers may re­main confidential.
