Marathon man arrested in fatal stabbing at Florida Keys mobile home park

A Marathon man was arrested Monday after he fatally stabbed another man and stole a car, Monroe County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin said.

Kyle Miller, 29, was stopped by deputies in Tavernier while driving north in a stolen 2000 Cadillac Eldorado, Herrin said.

The car was missing from the driveway of a mobile home park where Andre Howard, 34, was found dead on the side of a road.

Homicide detectives said they believe Miller fatally stabbed Howard during an early-morning argument. A newspaper delivery woman found Howard’s body about 4 a.m. and called 911.

Detectives followed a blood trail from the body to a mobile home belonging to Jack Belknap, who was the registered owner of the stolen car. Detectives said Miller is an acquaintance of Belknap whom he calls “uncle.”

Miller told detectives that he stabbed Howard after Howard made unwanted sexual advances toward him, Herrin said.

Belknap said Miller didn’t have permission to use his car.

Miller faces charges of second-degree murder and grand theft auto.

Stolen trailer full of toys recovered in Sunrise

A stolen trailer containing toys intended for children with cancer was recovered late Monday night in Sunrise.

It’s a huge sigh of relief for Sylvia Vanni, who is the co-founder of the Mystic Force Foundation.

The trailer used by the organization was stolen from her driveway at her North Miami home early Monday morning. Vanni took to social media and created fliers, desperately hoping someone would come forward. 

Vanni said she received huge support online.

Tips led police to a home in Sunrise, where they found the trailer and many of the toys.

“When we arrived there, the toys were not in the trailer, but we waited until about 2:30 in the morning when Sunrise police obtained a search warrant for a shed that’s in the backyard,” Vanni told Local 10 News. “When we opened the shed, the majority of the toys were there.”

The Mystic Force Foundation helps raise money for cancer research. It also collects toys for children who are undergoing cancer treatment. Vanni made her mission to help children with cancer after losing her own son, who died of stage 4 neuroblastoma. 

Sunrise police arrested Dudley Merus, 30, and a teenager. They face charges of grand theft.

Vanni said the toys will be given to children who are battling cancer at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital next month.
