Lambert put a GPS tracker on his ex-girlfriend’s car and sent her hundreds of threatening text messages.

In 2019, police say Lambert went to the North Side and killed Tre Valorie, a man the woman had started dating.

Jerquay Atkins and Tyler Sherrell, two other men charged in that killing, are still awaiting trial.
