Charlotte-Mecklenburg police on Thursday arrested a man they accuse of being involved in a 2014 homicide.
Shawn Archie Stinson, 38, of Charlotte, was charged with conspiracy to commit armed robbery in connection with the fatal shooting of Michael Angelo Crawford, 44, during a north Charlotte home invasion. Stinson was jailed on a $50,000 bail Thursday.
Police said Stinson is one of two suspects involved in the case.
Crawford was killed when two men broke down the front door of a house in the 5700 block of Rupert Lane, near The Plaza, early on a September morning, police said. The intruders entered the home and demanded money from Crawford.

Family members said Crawford’s two children and his 75-year-old mother hid in nearby bedrooms while the confrontation took place.
Several weeks after Crawford was killed, police arrested Corey Demon Walker, now 41, on charges of first-degree murder, first-degree burglary and robbery with a dangerous weapon. Walker remained jailed without bail Thursday, jail records show.
Police have not disclosed what information and evidence led to Stinson’s arrest Thursday morning, but they said the investigation remains “ongoing and active.”
Police encouraged anyone with information about Crawford’s shooting to call 704-432-TIPS (8477) and speak to a homicide detective. Or call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.
