    A third suspect in the murder of a 19-year-old man this past January faced a judge Wednesday.

    Rigoberto Landaverde-Lemus, 22, of Everett ordered to be held without bail during his murder charge arraignment.

    Landaverde-Lemus is accused of killing Omar Reyes during the evening of Jan. 2 with two others, 17-year-old Jose Vasquez Ardon and 18-year-old Cristian Nunez-Flores, also Everett residents.

    The Middlesex County district attorney's office says police officers were able to connect Landaverde-Lemus to the crime using DNA and fingerprint evidence that was found at Ardon's home.

    Ardon and Nunez-Flores were arrested and arraigned earlier this year.

    Authorities also add that evidence suggests the three defendants are members of MS-13, a violent gang originating from Central America.
