MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - An arrest has been made in a January homicide case, according to the Montgomery Police Department.

Anthony Stoddard, 26, of Montgomery, is charged with murder in connection to the Jan. 17 shooting death of Tametrius Richards.

The U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force arrested Stoddard Thursday. He’s been taken to the Montgomery County Detention Facility.
