Third suspect arrested in death of man found in Tampa trash bin

TAMPA — A third suspect in the death of a man found in a trash bin this month was arrested Wednesday night.

Jarvis Troupe, 24, was arrested at 1303 E Osbourne Ave. by Tampa police and U.S. marshals on a warrant for manslaughter. He is one of at least four men sought in connection to the killing of James Toney, 56.

Toney's body was found April 6 when a passer-by noticed his feet sticking out of a trash bin behind a closed bar at 1947 W Main St.

It's still unclear how Toney died, but police say a beating appears to have contributed to his death. Results of the autopsy are not complete.

Keontrye R. Williams, 22, and Renell M. Little, 17, were arrested this week and charged with manslaughter. Williams remains at the Hillsborough County Jail without bail, and Little was taken to the Juvenile Assessment Center because of his age.

At least one more suspect remains on the loose. Police are not releasing any names.

Troupe is also being held without bail. No other details have been released.
