    New London police charged one man Monday and plan on charging a second person in connection with a 2006 murder.

    Darius Armadore, 32, was charged with the killing of Todd Thomas on Bank Street, December 22, 2006.

    According to police Armadore shot and killed Thomas in front of Ernie's Cafe. Thomas died of multiple gunshot wounds, police said.

    Police detectives investigated the murder of Thomas for years and the case was finally turned over to the state's Cold Case Task Force in October 2011, according to authorities. New London Police Detective Richard Curcuro worked with investigators from the Chief State's Attorney's Office and FBI, as well as police from Norwich, Groton Town, Groton City, Waterford and Stonington to solve the case.

    Arrest warrants were issued last week for Armadore and 32-year-old Gerjuan Tyus.

    Armadore, who was already in Northern Correctional Institution on unrelated charges, was arraigned on murder and conspiracy to commit murder charges Monday. He is being held on $1 million bond.

    According to police, Tyus will be officially charged with murder and conspiracy to commit murder when he is transported from a correctional institution to New London Superior Court on Tuesday.
