Four now charged with robbery, murder of man found in rental car in Roxbury

A Dorchester man arrested over the weekend and three other people now face murder charges for the death of Brousseau Normil, 20, of Cambridge, whose body was found stuffed in the back seat of a rental car on Langdon Street in Roxbury last spring, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports.

Eric Barnes, 28, of Dorchester, Kenneth Sales, 24, of Roxbury and Tyronne Seams, 28, of Dorchester, were indicted Friday on charges of first-degreee murder and armed robbery, the DA's office reoprts. Brianna Erickson, 22, of Roxbury, was indicted for armed robbery.

Barnes is scheduled for arraignment tomorrow in Suffolk Superior Court. Sales and Seams are already being held on unrelated charges in Maine and Rhode Island; Erickson had previously been arraigned in Roxbury Municipal Court on the armed-robbery charge and she is behind bars in lieu of high bail, the DA's office says.

On March 5, 2013, Boston Police responded to Langdon Street and found Normil's body inside the car he had rented. The DA's office reports an autopsy and an investigation by detectives showed he had suffered a fatal gunshot wound - during the course of a robbery on Langdon.

Barnes was not unknown to police. In 2004, he was arrested for a series of armed holdups along with Liquarry Jefferson, whose son was killed accidentally by his 7-year-old cousin with an unlocked gun.

In 2010, Seams had his own run-in with Boston police, although he was later acquitted on charges related to that incident.

Innocent, etc.
