When the police arrest someone on a homicide charge for a recent event to which there were no witnesses, it's reasonable to question the details and validity of the arrest. That may be the situation developing in the recent violent crime arrest of a 21-year-old man as a suspect in the murder of a 42-year-old North Carolina man in his home a few days earlier. Charlotte-Mecklenburg police announced that they arrested the man without incident.
