DOVER, Del. (AP) - Police have arrested a suspect in the fatal shooting of a Maryland man during a home invasion in Delaware more than a year ago.

Cahlil Simmons, 25, was arrested Friday on a first-degree murder charge in the Jan. 5, 2019 killing of Jesse Stanford, 30, of Cambridge, Maryland, at a mobile home in Dover, the Delaware State Police said in a news release.

Simmons, of Felton, Delaware, was jailed at the Howard R. Young Correctional Institution near Wilmington. He also is charged with first-degree attempted robbery, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and first-degree conspiracy.

Stanford was shot in his upper body. He died at a local hospital.
