Man charged with prison inmate’s Rubis murder
Police have charged a man with the murder of an inmate on the prison work release program.
Prosecutors allege that Keno Stubbs, 21, gunned down Timothy Saunders at Rubis Gas Station on Mackey and Madeira Streets on May 2.
Stubbs was not required to enter a plea to the charge and was denied bail. He returns to court on August 19.
Saunders was working as a pump attendant at the station when a man shot him in the head. The inmate was due to be freed from prison in 2024 after serving time for his role in the 2011 shooting deaths of Edward Braynen, Chackara Rahming and Erica Ward.
According to the prosecution’s case, Saunders was present when another man shot the occupants of the cramped apartment on Montgomery Avenue. He was sentenced to 18 years in prison.
