KOKOMO, Ind. (WTHR) — Police in Kokomo say they have made an arrest in a deadly shooting from December.

Marcus Stone, 21, is now facing charges of murder, attempted murder and robbery.

Police have been investigating since they were called to the 400 block of West Monroe Street December 9.

They found Keith Jewell, 50, of Kokomo lying in the street. He had been shot in the head.

A short time later in the 1100 block of North Lindsay police found Jon S. Whitehead, 55, shot in the face. He told police a man had ordered him out of his car, they struggled and Whitehead was shot. He told police the suspect then took off in his car.

The stolen Buick was later found less than 10 blocks east of where Jewell was shot and killed.

It was just this past September that Stone was arrested in connection to a counterfeiting bust.

His trial in that case is scheduled for the end of this month.

In February, he was arrested and charged with resisting law enforcement with a deadly weapon.

He was in jail when he was charged with the murder of Jewell.
