Queen triple homicide suspect reveals grisly details about murders: sources
The Queens man accused of fatally stabbing three female relatives provided grisly details of the triple murder while being grilled by NYPD detectives in Virginia – and now awaits extradition to the Big Apple, law enforcement sources said on Monday.
Jabari Burrell, 22, waived his Miranda rights and gave police full details of how he killed each of his victims, including a 65-year-old woman who died in vain trying to admit her wheelchair-bound 26-year-old stepdaughter protect, sources said.
Burrell allegedly stole the elderly woman’s 2004 Toyota Sienna after the Springfield Garden killings on Friday and drove to Virginia, where he was caught Sunday when the vehicle ran out of gas on I-95.
An NYPD spokesman said police had begun the process of bringing Burrell back to Queens.
“He is awaiting extradition and the charges are pending at this time,” the spokesman said.
A representative for the Queens Borough Attorney’s Office said Burrell faces three counts of first and second degree murder and also faces criminal firearms possession charges.
Burrell is accused of fatally stabbing Hyacinth Brown-Johnson, 65, her 47-year-old daughter Latoya Gordon – the suspect’s aunt – and Brown-Johnson’s stepdaughter Patrice Johnson, police officers said.
Sources said the deadly rampage broke out after Burrell smoked marijuana in the house and got into an argument – then he snapped and turned on the women.
After the crime, an alert was issued for the suspect and Virginia State Police arrested him when his car stalled on the freeway and notified the NYPD.
A representative from the Virginia State Police Department referred all questions about the case to the NYPD.
