OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - Authorities have arrested a second man in connection with a triple homicide near Lacey in June.

Thurston County Sheriff Sgt. Carla Carter said in a news release 23-year-old Erique “Ricky” Lamere was booked into Thurston County Jail Wednesday on multiple murder and other charges.

Lamere had previously been booked in the case with unlawful possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.

Authorities have also charged 24-year-old Dugan Lawton with murder and other charges in the case. He pleaded not guilty July 12.

Two men and one woman were shot to death early June 22 in a travel trailer southwest of Seattle. A fourth man who was also shot called 911. Authorities say investigators found methamphetamine, heroin, thousands of dollars in cash and about half a dozen firearms in the trailer.
