Suspect In Murder Of Community Activist Due In Court

FORT WASHINGTON, Md. (AP) — A man suspected of killing a northern Virginia community activist is expected to appear in court for a preliminary hearing.

Linwood Johnson of Oxon Hill is charged with first-degree murder in the killing of Lenny Harris of Alexandria, Va.

Johnson, 53, is due in court Tuesday.

Harris was known for being an advocate for the underprivileged in Alexandria. He had been missing since September, and his body was discovered months later. It had been dumped into a well in Prince George’s County.

Officers have said robbery was the motive and that the two men knew each other. Police say Harris was shot to death.

There are two other suspects in the case as well, Ivan Newman, 20, and Tyron Lewis, 26.
