Joseph Kernizan was found in Miami after he killed his ex girlfriend Tracy Bennett and her new boyfriend Wayne Hamilton who was a Reggae musician at a Holiday Inn in the Bronx. Witnesses of the murders heard Bennett pleading for her life before he shot her
When Miami police tried to arrest him, he killed himself. NY Post reports:
About 20 US Marshals and officers circled the building and ordered everyone out last night. Kernizan drew the shades on his pal’s apartment when cops shouted instructions.
He then fled out the back of building, but saw he was surrounded and dashed back inside and locked the door, sources said.
Kernizan’s friend walked out and gave himself up 10 minutes later, leaving the gunman inside for his final minutes of life. He never verbally responded to any commands shouted by police outside.
