Miami Teacher Murdered By Gay Ex-Lover

Jilted lover kills beloved Miami teacher

North Miami Police have determined Miami teacher Charles Brown was stabbed to death last week because he didn't want to make a relationship work with his former boyfriend, Gregory Higgs.

Higgs has been arrested and charged with first-degree murder.

According to a police report, neighbors watched in horror as Higgs stabbed Brown several times with a kitchen knife in the hallway at Inland Towers Apartment. Higgs, 53, then fled the scene but was captured a short time later.

Police believe the two men knew each other for a long time and had an intimate relationship for the past seven or eight years before brown broke it off for unknown reasons. Brown, a 54-year-old teacher at North Miami High School, began receiving threatening E-mails at work and Higgs also sent his angry letters to the Miami-Dade County School Board.

Police believe all Higgs wanted was an explanation for the break-up and he waited in the hallway at brown's apartment to get it.
