MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – Former Miami Norland Senior High School Assistant Principal Ernest Joseph Roberts was arrested Friday morning and charged in the killing of teacher Kameela Russell.
Roberts, 39, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of the educator, who was most recently assigned as a test proctor at the school.
Authorities said Russell’s body was found floating in a canal near Roberts’ home on May 25.
“Knowing her and the type of person she was, I just don’t understand it. I don’t understand it at all,” Russell’s mother, Linda Russell, told Local 10 News last month.
