The Montgomery Police Department says it's taken into custody a suspect wanted in connection to the city's 28th homicide of 2012. Cedric Stokes, 24, is now charged with the murder of Oterious Belser.

Belser was struck by a vehicle on Davis Drive on November 18. He died of his injuries on November 21.
