    What to Know

    • A man's body was found on Nov. 14 after firefighters put out flames that consumed a car in North Lauderdale.

    • Three suspects have been arrested for the killing of Darren Butler.

    The Miami-Dade Police Department said the person arrested Wednesday after barricading in a local home is a suspect in the killing of a man whose body was found in a burning car in North Lauderdale last month.

    Jeffrey Harrell, 28, was arrested after the hours-long incident in which he barricaded at the home in the area of NW 83rd Street and 5th Avenue, police said. He had been sought on an out-of-county warrant.

    A SWAT team deployed to respond. Following an arrest, police confirmed that the man detained on Wednesday was Harrell – wanted since the November killing of Darren Butler.

    Two other people had previously been arrested and charged with first-degree murder over Butler's death – Johntavis McCoe, 26, was arrested Nov. 21 and Rougiena Deriveire, 18, was arrested Nov. 18.
