MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - Authorities say a third person has been arrested in the killing of a college economics professor in Alabama.

Mobile police say 23-year-old Anthony Womack Jr. is charged with murder in the November slaying of Matthew Wiser, who taught at the University of South Alabama.

Two other men were arrested in Wiser’s slaying in December.

Authorities say the 39-year-old Wiser was shot to death during what appears to have been a home invasion in November.

Police say Womack is also charged with marijuana possession in an unrelated case.

Court documents aren’t available to show whether he has a lawyer.
