Suspects Arrested in Denver Slaying that Claimed Life of Overland Park Man
DENVER — Three people have been arrested in connection with the deaths of five people at a Denver bar that was set on fire, according to the Associate Press.
Police Commander Ronald Saunier said the suspects intended to rob Fero’s Bar & Grill before closing on Wednesday. Saunier did not say what led the suspects to kill. The suspects were identified as Joseph Hill, 27, his brother, Lynell Hill, 24, and Dexter Lewis 22. All three were arrested in Denver.
Police said they believed the fire was intended to cover up the murders. Four women and a man were killed in the incident. One of the women, 63-year-old Young Fero, was the bar owner. Police said all four women had been badly beaten. The male victim, identified as Ross Richter, 29, is believed to be from Overland Park, Kan. Police said one of the cars towed from the bar’s parking lot had Kansas plates. That car is believed to belong to Richter. The other victims were identified as Daria M. Pohl, 22; Kellene Fallon, 45; and Tereasa Beesley, 45.
