On November 22, 2010, Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department Major Crimes Bureau detectives arrested 36-year-old Fitima Laqish Goodman at a home in the 3600 block of Marysville Boulevard.

Both suspects were arrested for their involvement in the June 15, 2010 robbery and murder of 50-year-old Fernando Vichez.

On September 30, 2010, 22-year-old Jermaine Antonio Barnes was the first suspect arrested in connection to the crime.

On June 15, 2010, at 1:42 a.m., the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department’s received a call regarding gunshots heard in the area of Howe Avenue and Whippoorwill Lane. A deputy performing a vehicle stop in the area heard the gunshots and drove to that location.

The deputy discovered Vichez lying in the street and suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. The deputy performed cardio pulmonary resuscitation on Vichez until paramedics arrived and transported him to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

Witnesses told investigators Vichez was walking on Howe Avenue when a vehicle stopped and the suspects got out, approached the victim and started fighting with him. During the fight, one of the suspects produced an unknown type gun, shot the victim multiple times, and robbed him. The suspects then got back into the vehicle and fled from the scene.

Goodman was booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail on the charges of murder and robbery. She is ineligible for bail and is scheduled to be arraigned on November 24, 2010, at 1:30 p.m. in Department 62. The juvenile suspect is being held in Fresno. Sacramento Sheriff’s Department officials are working with the Fresno authorities to have the juvenile returned to Sacramento where he will also face the charges of murder and robbery.
