Ottawa Man Being Sought In Murder Case

Posted by wlpo on May 7, 2011

A fourth person is being charged with murder in the death of Darrio Hunter of Ottawa.

A warrant has been issued for 30 year old Joshua Ward of Ottawa.  Investigators say his last known address is 1803 Guion Street in Ottawa but he may not have been there for several weeks.

His brother Jason Ward of Aurora along with Jamie Lomeli of Ottawa and her brother Luis Lomeli of Sheridan face murder charges in this past Monday’s stabbing of Darrio Hunter.  Hunter was found lying outside Jamie Lomeli’s home on Pierce Street.  Investigators think it was an attempted robbery set up by a drug deal.

Ottawa Police Chief Brian Zeilman says Joshua Ward is probably the last person to be charged with murder in this case.
