Arrest in Md. insurance slaying: Police
Baltimore police have arrested the man they say pulled the trigger in the slaying of a blind and mentally disabled man as part of an insurance scam.
Twenty-seven-year-old Kareem Clea was arrested Thursday and charged with first-degree murder and numerous other offenses.
A former pastor has already pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit murder in the February 2009 slaying of Lemuel Wallace.
Kevin Pushia admitted that he paid a hit man $50,000 to kill Wallace, whose body was found in a bathroom stall in a city park. He had been shot in the head. Pushia had taken out several life insurance policies in Wallace’s name.
The alleged triggerman is the younger brother of James Clea, who’s accused of conspiring with Pushia and faces a November trial.
