Police have arrested a third suspect in a 2011 homicide in Ansonia.

The arrest is in connection with the homicide of 25-year-old Isaia Hernandez in the parking lot of the Xtra Mart on Wakelee Avenue in Ansonia on March 16, 2011.

Spino was charged with felony murder, robbery in the first degree and conspiracy to commit robbery in the first degree.

He was held on a $500,000 bond and will be arraigned at Derby Superior Court on Thursday.
