Caroline man fatally stabbed
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.
Crime scene technicians from the Maryland State Police Forensic Sciences Division processed the scene for evidence. Assistance is being provided by the Caroline County Drug Task Force, the Greensboro Police Department, Caroline County Sheriff’s Office, the Goldsboro Volunteer Fire Department and the Delaware State Police. State police investigators from the Criminal Enforcement Division, Upper Shore Region, also responded to assist with the investigation as it continues.
