What kind of a name is Crumble?
I have never met someone with that name.
Black people are weird.
With jurors picked and lawyers ready to begin a double murder trial here, a Jennings man admitted he fatally shot two men and wounded a third at a Forest Park Southeast apartment two years ago.
The seated jurors watched Tuesday afternoon as Miquis Crumble, 21, accepted a plea deal and was sentenced to 45 years in prison. He pleaded guilty to two counts of second-degree murder — reduced from first-degree — assault and three counts of armed criminal action.
Crumble admitted killing Huston Martin IV, 41, and his friend Cory Goodwin, 38, on Aug. 7, 2016, at Martin’s apartment in the 4200 block of Chouteau Avenue.
He also admitted to charges of shooting Martin’s brother, Clinton Martin, in the finger, mouth and chest, leaving him bleeding on a couch in the apartment for nearly 20 hours, in and out of consciousness, before he was found.
