Two arrested in July slaying
Two men in their 20s have been arrested and charged with murder and manslaughter for the death of a man on Homestead Street on July 7.
Boston police said they arrested 24-year-old Adnan Tahlil of Roxbury and 27-yearold Demetrius Bennett of Dorchester Friday night on outstanding warrants.
Tahlil is being charged with manslaughter and Bennett is facing a murder charge, both related to the shooting death of 29-year-old Christian Rivera of Dorchester. Rivera was shot in the head near the intersection of Homestead Street and Humboldt Avenue in Roxbury on July 7, police said.
When officers arrived on scene about 3:10 p.m., they found Rivera on the sidewalk and had him transported to Boston Medical Center, where he later died from his injuries.
Both suspects are expected to appear in Suffolk Superior Court, where they will face arraignment for their charges, police said.
