MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Investigators say they've made an arrest in a year old Montgomery murder that happened on Conti Lane.

Cornelius Thomas, 29, suffered a gunshot wound to the abdomen and remained hospitalized until his death nearly two months later.

Thursday, the Montgomery Police Department confirmed that it made an arrest in the case.

Investigators had been working a lead developed in mid-September that indicated Adrian L. Stewart, 35, of Virginia Pines Lane was the shooter.  "Based on this information and the fact that robbery appears to have been the motive, a capital murder warrant was signed on Mr. Stewart who was not in custody," the Department said in a statement.

Wednesday, the U.S. Marshals Joint Task Force determined Stewart's location and took him into custody. 

Stewart has since been turned over to Montgomery Police and is being held in the Montgomery County Detention Facility without a bond. 

Additionally, the resident at the home where Stewart was staying, Algion Timmons, 31, was charged with Hindering Prosecution 1st degree and placed in the Montgomery County Detention Facility with a bond of $15,000.
