TAMPA — A Tampa man was arrested Monday in the death of man found killed at a home in the University of South Florida area last week, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office.

Kadeem Dareem Archibald, 26, faces a charge of second-degree murder in the death of Khando Kerr, deputies said.

Deputies arrested Archibald about 2 p.m. in the Fernandez and Hernandez Law Firm offices at 3002 W Kennedy Blvd. in Tampa, deputies said. He listed attorney Martin Fernandez, a partner in the firm, as his defense attorney on his arrest records. Archibald was arrested without incident.

Detectives issued Archibald's arrest warrant May 18, two days after deputies responding to a 911 call discovered Kerr dead in his home.

Deputies arrived at 1509 128th Avenue E, not far from Fowler Avenue, about 9:20 p.m. and said Kerr, 38, had died from wounds to his upper torso.

Archibald has hearings scheduled next month in another Tampa case, records show.

He was arrested October 1, 2016 at Club Skye in Ybor City on a felony aggravated battery charge. Archibald had been thrown out of the club, but returned and repeatedly stabbed the club's bouncer in the stomach and neck with a pocket knife, according to his arrest affidavit.
