A second man has been arrested in the 2006 murder of a man found dead in a field in Ledyard.

State police arrested Christopher Vincenti, 32, of New London, on Friday.

He is charged with the decade-old murder of 41-year-old Anthony Hamlin, of Groton.

A driver traveling on Shewville Road in Ledyard called 911 around 8:20 a.m. on Jan. 28, 2006 to report that there was a body in the field next to 448 Shewville Road, according to police. Investigators responded and found Hamlin’s naked body in a vacant field.

The last time anyone had seen Hamlin alive was around 10:30 p.m. on Jan. 27, 2006 in the area of the New London Transportation Center, police said.

Hamlin, a father of five and member of the Eastern Pequot Tribe, told his family he was grabbing dinner from Subway before getting on a train to head to Virginia for a new job, but his body was discovered the next morning.

Police said they developed information over the past decade that linked Vincenti and another man, Timothy Johnson, to Hamlin's death.

Johnson was arrested last week.

Vincenti is facing a felony murder charge and is being held on $1 million bond. He is scheduled to be in court on Monday.
