He was also arrested in January 2012 for the shooting deaths of the two women and a child in a Lauderdale Lakes apartment.
He has pleaded not guilty to three counts of second-degree murder with a firearm in the deaths of 21-year-old Octavia Barnett, 25-year-old Natasha Plummer and her 6-month-old child Carlton Stringer Jr.
