Three young men were arraigned on a charge of murder for the death of Ian Robert Blair when they appeared today before Magistrate Deborah Rogers. The accused murderers are 19 year old Byron Flowers, 21 year old Max Orosco and 18 year old Windell Thurton. The trio was also charged with aggravated burglary, attempted murder of 44 year old Dr. Marcus Miranda, dangerous harm and use of deadly means of harm. Police say that the three men, armed with knives, broke into Miranda’s home on Simon Lamb Street and stole a television and other items. In that home invasion, Blair was stabbed to death. His brother, Amir Heredia, says that the family craves for justice.


All three men were remanded into custody until March 30.
