Lamont Salter, 25, who is currently serving a prison sentence for robbery at the Grafton Correctional Institution, was charged with aggravated murder, aggravated robbery, kidnapping and gun specifications in the 2012 shooting death of DeShawn Scott.

Prosecutors said new forensic evidence led them to charge  Salter with the crime.
