December 02, 1992|By Mike Farabaugh | Mike Farabaugh,Staff Writer

Two men sought in separate homicide investigations were arrested and charged with first-degree murder yesterday by city police.

Milachi D. Thomas, 18, of the 2100 block of Chelsea Terrace, was being held at the Southwestern District police station, awaiting a bail hearing in connection with Sunday night's triple-shooting in the 3700 block of Windsor Mill Road that left one man dead in what police called a drug deal gone sour.

Police said Mr. Thomas and another suspect barged into a Windsor Mill Road apartment and gunned down Theodore Kearney, 24, and wounded Mr. Kearney's brother, William Massey, 27, and Jeffrey Key, 29.

Mr. Kearney was pronounced dead at the scene. Mr. Massey was listed in serious condition and Mr. Key in critical but stable condition last night at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center.

In addition to first-degree murder, Mr. Thomas also was charged with two counts of attempted murder and three counts of felony by handgun, police said.

Police are seeking the other suspect.

In the other investigation, Randall Newkirk, 30, of the 3500 block of Elmora Ave., was being held at the Central District police station after being arrested yesterday and charged with first-degree murder in the Nov. 21 slaying of Anthony L. Ferguson, police said.

Police said the 26-year-old victim was stabbed to death on the street in the 1000 block of N. Castle St. where he met Mr. Newkirk, whom he believed owed him money for an alleged drug deal.

The men argued and Mr. Ferguson threw a punch before Mr. Newkirk allegedly pulled a knife and fatally stabbed him, police said. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

Mr. Newkirk, who was taken into custody at his home, was also charged with using a deadly weapon in the commission of a felony.
