Bembury, 42, was found shot to death inside a home in the 5000 block of Blayne Drive, and police said the shooting occurred during a home invasion.

Keyelle Luavee Hassell, 34, and Brenton Victor Nottingham, 31, both of the 5400 block of Wichita Drive, were previously charged in the case.

Linton also was charged with attempted robbery and assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury in connection with an Aug. 16, 2015, incident; three counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon and one count each of conspiracy to commit robbery and attempted robbery in an Oct. 13 incident; and robbery with a dangerous weapon in a Nov. 23 incident.

He was being held Monday without bond in the Cumberland County jail.
