Security Guard Admits To Murder

Eastlake Oh. Oct 24, 2007 A Cleveland security guard, angry about his former girlfriend's engagement, killed his romantic rival, police say.
Dajuan Banks, 34, of Kipling Avenue, was charged with aggravated murder Monday. He was in Lake County Jail on Monday on a $500,000 bond.
He is accused of slashing the throat of Samuel Nicholson Jr., 41, on Oct. 15 at the Plymouth Road home Nicholson shared with fiancée Jackqualynn Duncan, Eastlake police said.
Duncan returned from work about 10:30 a.m. and found Nicholson dead in the bedroom. They had been engaged 21 days. Police believe he was killed between 7:30 and 10 a.m.
Banks, who works for Securitas Security Services as a guard for WJW Channel 8 News in Cleveland, slashed three tires on Nicholson's GMC truck, then waited for Duncan's children to leave for school before he broke into the home and confronted Nicholson about dating Duncan, Lt. Bill Gutowski said. Banks had dated her for about 18 months before she met Nicholson at a Wickliffe bar.
Police said she sent Banks a text message to notify him of the breakup.
Gutowski said Banks confessed to the crime during questioning late Thursday night. He told police he was aware of Duncan's morning routine and waited until Nicholson was alone in the home before he went in. During the argument he pistol-whipped Nicholson before slashing his throat.
Police said Duncan had not filed any harassment or stalking complaints against Banks and was not aware of his resentment against Nicholson, police said.
