DNA links second man to Coral Springs murder case, police say

After a six-year investigation, DNA recovered from spit and a juice bottle linked two men to the murder of a Coral Springs man, court documents say.

Jason David Martinez, 28, of New York, was arrested there in October and extradited to Broward County in February on suspicion of committing the 2011 stabbing murder of Michael Hamilton, 31, of Coral Springs.

Kadian Andre Garfield Roper, 37, of Coral Springs, was taken into custody Wednesday for the same offense. Both men are being held without bond in a Broward County jail.

Hamilton was last seen alive at 8: 30 p.m. July 9, 2011, at the apartment he shared with a roommate in the 9800 block of Northwest 33rd Street.
