Cops find murder suspect in jail

Choute If things went down the way investigators say they did, Waltaire Choute killed a man on a Sunday, then raped a woman two days later.

Police today charged Choute, 23, with first-degree murder in connection with the April 22 shooting death of a Burger King manager. Detectives say Choute and a friend, James LaPointe, stormed into the North Miami fast-food spot and killed Jose Luis Leon Olivera before fleeing the restaurant.

Cops have been hunting for the men since the shooting. They found out Monday that Choute had been picked up in connection with a North Miami Beach burglary and sexual battery on April 24. Now, he faces charges in the fatal shooting and the rape.

Investigators are still searching for LaPointe.

Fellow crime reporter Erika Beras has been following the Burger King shooting story. Here is her breaking-news story about Choute's arrest.
