Posted by Fay Arfa | Apr 07, 2017 | 0 Comments

A homeless man has been charged with murder for the deadly stabbing of a commuter at a Koreatown Metro Station, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office announced.

Deputy District Attorney David Richman said Barry Lucky Timmons (dob 2/20/80) faces one count of murder in case BA455194.

The criminal complaint includes allegations that Timmons used a knife as a deadly weapon and he was convicted in 2010 of attempted second-degree robbery.

Timmons pleaded not guilty today and is scheduled to return on April 26 to Department 30 of the Foltz Criminal Justice Center. The case was filed on March 7.

The victim, Andres Ramos, 37, was allegedly attacked and stabbed to death on March 5 on the Metro Purple Line platform at the Wilshire/Normandie Station, the prosecutor said. Following the attack, Timmons reportedly went to a nearby fast-food restaurant where he barricaded himself for nearly an hour, the prosecutor added.

If convicted as charged, the defendant faces a possible maximum sentence of 51 years to life in state prison. Bail is set at more than $2 million.

The case remains under investigation by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.
