FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): An Allen County judge has denied a Fort Wayne man’s request to have his murder confession thrown out.
Police say he told them he shot her in the head last May after recognizing her as a member of a rival gang. Lumpkin, however, says police misled him and used his girlfriend, who is also facing more than 8 years in prison for assisting a criminal, as leverage against him.
Judge David Zent found that police did not mislead Lumpkin in their attempts to get a confession. His trial is set to start on April 13th.
