Police this week charged a Detroit man with the June fatal shooting of a man in New Castle.

Antonio Kelly, 28, was arrested Wednesday on charges including homicide, assault, gun violations and related offenses. He was already in the Lawrence County Jail on gun charges in a separate, unrelated incident, police said.

Mr. Kelly is accused of killing Andrew Edwards Jr. at the Crestview Gardens housing complex on June 20. Police said Mr. Kelly had been staying in the Harbor Heights housing complex, also in New Castle, since around January.

Officers arrived that day after a call reporting that a man had been shot in the hallway of 1110 Pin Oak Drive. There, police said in a news release, they found Mr. Edwards with "numerous" gunshot wounds.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.
