— The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office has a third suspect in custody in the shooting death of a doughnut shop worker.

Angel Bonilla, 18, turned himself in shortly before 11 p.m. Wednesday, authorities said. He is scheduled to appear in court at 2:30 p.m. Friday.

Patrick King, 18, turned himself in Tuesday morning, and deputies arrested Luis Marquez-Lopez, 19, on Tuesday afternoon, authorities said.

All three have been charged with first-degree murder and armed robbery.

Three masked men robbed Donut Connection, 104 S. Bragg Blvd., at about 4 a.m. Sunday and killed Ranesh Rai, 66, who worked in the store, authorities said.

Rai's sister, who was working with him, and a customer were in the store at the time of the robbery. The three robbers escaped with an undetermined amount of cash, authorities said.
