A man suspected of killing another man in Lawrence, Massachusetts, this month was arrested Wednesday on a murder charge, prosecutors said.
Hector Raul Aybar-Soto, a 26-year-old from Lawrence, is accused of fatally shooting Christopher Garcia, 24, in the city on March 17, the Essex County District Attorney's Office said Wednesday.
Aybar-Soto is expected in Lawrence District Court Thursday to face the charge. It wasn't immediately clear whether he had an attorney who could speak to Aybar-Soto's arrest.
A family member of Garcia's has described him as a father of a toddler and a baby who lived for his wife and children.
