Two arrested after victim killed in Saturday home invasion
Two suspects have been arrested and charged in a home invasion Saturday night that left a man dead.
Police report Kyi Baker, 20, and a 14-year-old male are accused of murdering Robert Dendy, 49.
Police responded to reports of two men trying to break into a home near Auburn Street and North Toledo Ave.
Dendy confronted the suspects in an alley and pointed a gun at them and told them to freeze, according to a police report. Investigators report Dendy was shot in the chest by the 14-year-old. Dendy was taken to UMC where he later died.
LPD patrol officers were able to quickly identify the suspects. By 10:30 p.m., less than two hours after the original call, officers located Baker and the 14-year-old at an apartment complex near 11th street and Bangor Ave.
By 6 a.m. Sunday, both Baker and the juvenile were charged with murder.
Investigators report the two suspects specifically targeted the home they were breaking into. Baker told police he and the juvenile were trying to steal a safe that they suspected contained drugs, money and an AR-15 rifle.
Baker is held on a $100,000 bond.
