Police said David, 40-year-old Linda Quidetto, 40-year-old Jason Sullenberger and 20-year-old Michael Covington robbed and killed Genard, stabbing him 20 times and slitting his throat. The suspects stole $1,100 in cash, two bricks of heroin and some crack cocaine.

Quidetto, Sullenberger and Covington were arrested earlier this week while David remained on the run. Police believed David may have been the mastermind of the crime.
