NYPD busts suspect in Brooklyn slaying that followed argument over woman
The suspect sought in a late-night stabbing murder in Brooklyn has been arrested, police said Friday.
Freddie Davis, 37, allegedly killed Kurt Pieters, 41, on E. 106th St. near Flatlands Ave. in Canarsie on June 5.
Davis was arrested on manslaughter and weapons charges five days later. For reasons that were not clear, the NYPD did not release that information until Friday, when the victim was identified for the first time.
The victim was a longtime member of the 100 Clocks street gang and had been sentenced to eight years in prison after being convicted of a Brooklyn robbery in 2000, according to court records and police sources.
Davis had seven prior arrests, including for robbery and assault, according to police. The murder was sparked by an argument over a woman, they said.
