TACOMA — The fourth suspect sought in a fatal home-invasion robbery linked to a Craigslist ad has turned himself in to police.

King County Jail spokesman Major William Hayes said Clabon T. Berniard, 23, turned himself in to the jail around 1 p.m. Thursday. Hayes says Berniard will be transferred to Pierce County Jail.

The Pierce County sheriff’s office had sought Berniard on a nationwide arrest warrant on charges of murder, robbery and assault.

Two other men waived extradition from California and a woman entered a not guilty plea in Tacoma Wednesday. All face the same charges.

James Sanders of the Pierce County community of Edgewood was fatally shot on April 28 at his home by robbers who showed up on the pretext of purchasing an expensive ring he had advertised on the Internet site.
