A second man arrested for fatally shooting a man on Interstate 95 in a murder authorities were alerted to when one of the alleged killers pocket dialed 911.
Ronel Desinor, 27, was arrested Monday for the death of Nicholas Romondo Walker on May 5, Broward Sheriff’s Office said.
Another man, Scott Simon, was previously arrested and described as the mastermind in the murder. They were both being held without bond at Broward County Jail.
They each face first-degree murder charges, and it wasn’t immediately known if they had attorneys.
Desinor’s specific role in the murder is not being released, the sheriff’s office said.
Their arrests came after Simon accidentally called 911. He can be heard on the recorded line saying he was going to follow 33-year-old Walker home and kill him, deputies said.
Minutes after the call, Walker was shot and killed while driving his car onto the highway. He had previously gotten into an argument at a nearby Waffle House, the sheriff’s office said.
When deputies arrived on scene, Walker's silver Buick had crashed into a guard rail on I-95 near Commercial Boulevard. He had already died of gunshot wounds by the time authorities put out a fire that had started in the engine compartment.
