Witness: Bullet recovered from 2012 Topeka slaying victim matched to pistol

The .45-caliber bullet recovered from the head of slaying victim Geovani Plakio matched a semiautomatic pistol seized from the apartment of defendant Deijaun Donte Leanndre Lamb’s girlfriend, a witness testified Wednesday.

The testimony was given during the preliminary hearing of Lamb, 24, in Shawnee County District Court. Plakio was fatally wounded Nov. 8, 2012, while a passenger in a car in the 600 block of S.E. Locust when three gunmen opened fire on the vehicle. He died two days later.

Lamb is charged with first-degree murder of Plakio and two counts of attempted first-degree murder, according to district court records.

Olathe police officer Chad Johnson testified he recovered a .45-caliber semiautomatic pistol when he responded to a domestic assault at an Olathe apartment on Jan. 5, 2013.

The victim told police that Lamb had brought the pistol, which was recovered from a kitchen cabinet, into her apartment.
