Seeking a fifth suspect in connection with the December killing of a man in St. Johnsbury
Vermont State Police officials are seeking a fifth suspect in connection with the December killing of a man in St. Johnsbury. An arrest warrant has been issued for Danny Daniels, 30, of Philadelphia on charges of aiding in the commission of first-degree murder, aiding in the commission of assault and robbery with a weapon, and aiding in the commission of a burglary. The charges arise from the fatal shooting of Israel Lugo, 49, at the Higgins Hill apartment house where he was living. The court ordered that Daniels be held without bail upon his arrest. State police detectives investigating the homicide reported Daniels was involved in drug trafficking and organized a plan for four people who owed him money to rob Lugo. During the robbery, one of the individuals fatally shot Lugo. State police arrested the four suspects last week in St. Johnsbury, but Daniels remains at large.
