    The former neighbor of a man murdered back in 2012 has been arrested in connection with his death, Montgomery County police said Tuesday.

    Katrina Renee Ben, 35, was arrested on June 21 at her home in Mississippi. On June 6, 2012, Eric Somuah, 34, was found with a gunshot wound to the head in his apartment on East-West Highway. He was pronounced dead at the scene. 

    Police say Ben was romantically-involved with Somuah and was the last person to see him alive.

    Investigators found what was determined to be the murder weapon partially disassembled on I-495, and it was determined Ben purchased the gun at pawn shop in 2004, a press release states.

    Ben is charged with first degree murder. She remains in custody in Mississippi.
