MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Nearly two months to the day after he was murdered, police say they've arrested another suspect in 20-year-old Xavier Means' homicide case.

Tuesday, Montgomery Police Department spokesman Major Huey Thornton announced the arrest of 19-year-old George Ware after linking him to the murder. Ware is said to have " knowingly and intentionally participated" in a robbery of Means. Because Means died during the commission of a felony, Ware can be charged with his murder even if he didn't pull the trigger.

Ware joins two other suspects now charged in the case. Demaricous Mack, 17, and Demarris Mack, 20, turned themselves in a short time after Means died and were both charged with Capital Murder. They're being held on no bond. 

Police say the men murdered Means during a botched marijuana robbery.

Means was sitting in his Cadillac sedan with several friends just after midnight on January 25 when several suspects came up to his car. At least one was armed.

Police say after seeing the gun, Means' two friends ran from the car on foot. When investigators arrived a short time later, they found Means unresponsive on the ground. The suspects fled the scene in Means' car.  

The victim died at a local hospital less than an hour later.

Ware is being held in the Montgomery County Detention Facility on a $75,000 bond.
