Durham, N.C. — A man in the Wake County jail awaiting a murder trial was charged Friday in a 2011 homicide in Durham, police said.
Miguel Antonio Meza-Rodriguez, 22, of Durham, was charged with murder in the death of Orlando Martinez.
Martinez, 32, was found shot to death outside an apartment building in the 600 block of Hardee Street on July 5, 2011. Investigators said the shooting apparently occurred during an altercation.
Police didn't say what evidence linked Meza-Rodriguez to the crime.
The arrest warrant was served on him in the Wake County jail, where he has been held since July 21, 2011, on charges of murder, conspiracy to commit murder and robbery with a dangerous weapon.
He is one of seven people charged with the shooting death of Santiago Hernandez-Arredondo, 44, of Durham, outside a vacant house off N.C. Highway 98 in northern Wake County on July 17, 2011.
