Police Charge Two More Suspects In Deadly Lexington Home Invasion

Police have arrested two more suspects in a Monday night shooting in Lexington.

Investigators say three intruders forced their way into the apartment when the victim's 11-year-old daughter opened the door. The victim got a gun and he, along with two of the intruders, suffered gunshot wounds during the ensuing shootout.

Police say officers located two injured suspects in a separate apartment. EMS took all three to UK Hospital.

The victim, who police identified at a 26-year-old Hispanic man, later died at the hospital.

Police took Rodneisha L. Murphy, 20, into custody for questioning and later charged her with robbery. According to court documents, Murphy confessed to planning and directing co-defendant in "committing a theft through physical force while armed with a deadly weapon." Investigators say Murphy was not present at the apartment during the robbery.

Police have also arrested and charged an unnamed juvenile and Alexander Wallace Burdette, 25, with robbery and murder. Officials say the third suspect was a juvenile and suffered a life threatening injury.

Family members of the victim say the suspects had come over to played video games at the apartment in the past and they think they were targeted because of the electronics inside the unit.
