Three suspects have been arrested in the murder of a Brooklyn rapper. Rhian Stout, aka Kampane, was found shot to death, torched, and abandoned in the back of an SUV in New Jersey earlier this week. And now, suspect Randy Manning is being held on felony murder charges. "The shooting may have been related to a dispute or involvement over money, [and not Stoute's] status as a performer," Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli told Cliffview Pilot.

Authorities believe that Stoute had driven with Manning on a shopping trip to malls in Paramus on Monday, and later to a vacant house in Englewood; there, Manning shot the rapper several times in the head and torso. He then set fire to his body to try to destroy evidence, and fled the scene. On Tuesday, Manning went back, "removed the charred body of Rhian Stoute from the house and placed it into the rear cargo" of the vehicle, then drove the car to Paramus.

Manning was later picked up by a friend, suspect Delroy Clarke, who was charged with hindering the apprehension of another. Manning's girlfriend, Natuchka Etienne, is also under arrest for lying to investigators and trying to give a false alibi for Manning. Manning, who is unemployed, has been charged with murder, burglary, weapon possession, arson, desecration of human remains, and witness tampering.
