A Second Arrest Made in Leamington Ave Homicide


Buffalo Police Homicide Detectives have arrested a second suspect in connection with last year's murder of Joseph Kuhn, who was found shot dead in his Leamington Avenue upstairs apartment. The apparent victim of an armed robbery, Kuhn 37 years old at the time, was discovered in the upper apartment hallway on the morning of February 3rd. Asia Davis of Wecker Street was charged with murder in the second degree. " She turned 20 years old last week", according to Chief of Detectives Dennis J. Richards.

Earlier this week, Buffalo Police announced a resident of Jamestown, N.Y., had been charged in the homicide investigation. David Dixon was arrested and charged with murder in the second degree.

"This case was pursued very diligently by Homicide Detectives, who were able to connect small pieces of information, leading to the arrest of these two suspects", Richards said. Ms. Davis is currently confined to the Erie County Holding Center and is scheduled to appear in Buffalo City Court today. Davis faces additional charges in Cheektowaga Town Court on stolen property and unauthorized use of a vehicle charges.

Taking part in the investigation and arrest were Detectives Reginald Minor, Mary Evans, Scott Malec and Brian Ross, along with Sergeants Jonathan Walton and James P. Lonergan.
