Arrest Made In Weekend Death Of Boston Man


BOSTON (AP) - Boston police have made an arrest in a homicide in the city last weekend.

Police say 40-year-old Brian Sweeney was found suffering from "undetermined traumatic injuries" inside a home in the city's West Roxbury neighborhood on Sunday morning. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Nathurlon Munnerlyn was arrested in connection with Sweeney's death on Wednesday. He is scheduled for arraignment on a murder charge Friday in West Roxbury Municipal Court.

Authorities have not said how Sweeney died or disclosed a possible motive. It could not immediately be determined if the suspect has a lawyer.

The victim's father tells the Boston Herald that his son had cognitive impairment but was a "good kid" who fell in with the wrong crowd and was easily manipulated.
