    (Published Friday, Nov. 24, 2017)

    Boston police have made an arrest in connection with a homicide Sunday in West Roxbury.

    Nathurlon Munnerlyn, 39, is charged with murder for his role in the death of 40-year-old Brian M. Sweeney.

    Sweeney was found inside a Temple Street apartment by police at about 6:20 a.m. on Sunday. First responders determined that Sweeney was suffering from "undetermined traumatic injuries,” and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

    Three days later, police identified and arrested Munnerlyn.

    "I'm always concerned when there is a homicide in Boston; even one is too many," said Police Commissioner William Evans, "Although I realize nothing can bring these victims back, I hope, especially going into this holiday season, these arrests can bring some solace and peace to the victims' families."

    Munnerlyn is scheduled to be arraigned in West Roxbury District Court.
