Authorities have arrested three suspects in connection with the murder of a Brooklyn rapper, who was found badly burned on an abandoned street in New Jersey.

Bergen County Prosecutor John Molinelli announced the arrests of Randy Manning and Natuchka Etienne, both of Brooklyn, and Delroy E. Clarke, of Englewood, in connection to the murder of Rhian H. Stoute of Brooklyn.
 
Stoute, who rapped under the name Kampane, was found badly burned in his own truck in Paramus. An autopsy report determined that he died from multiple gunshot wounds to the head and upper torso. 
 
An investigation later found suspect Manning and the victim were associates, and traveled together from Brooklyn to New Jersey on Monday. After stopping at several stores and malls, the two went to a vacant building on Tryon Avenue in Englewood, where the victim was shot multiple times.
 
The suspect is accused of later setting fire to the residence to destroy evidence related to the crime. 
 
After Manning left the body in the truck, Clarke allegedly picked him up and drove him out of the area.
 
Etienne, described as Manning's girlfriend, is accused of hindering the investigation by trying to create a false alibi for her boyfriend.
 
Both Etienne and Clarke are being charged with hindering the apprehension of another.
 
Manning is facing multiple charges, including first-degree murder, first-degree felony murder, and second-degree burglary.  
 
Investigators believe the shooting may have been related to a dispute over money.
