      Columbia murder suspect arrested in New Orleans

      Jimiah Lambert was arrested Thursday for second-degree murder.

      A third suspect in the January murder of 23-year-old Dontay Tolston has been arrested in New Orleans.

      Columbia Police say U.S. Marshals found and arrested 20-year-old Jimiah Lambert for second-degree-murder just before 11:30 a.m. Thursday.

      Columbia Police Detectives have already traveled to New Orleans and interviewed Lambert, who awaits extradition to the Boone County Sheriff's Department.

      Two others have already been arrested for Tolston's murder; 21-year-old Martrell Smith and 17-year-old Derrick Copelin.
