Rocky Mount police say there's been an arrest in a cold case murder.

Brandon Bland of Augusta, Georgia was charged with first degree murder and attempted first degree murder.

Police say Marcella Hunter was killed and Dominique Ransome was wounded on December 23, 2008 at a home on Williford Street. They said two men came into the home and shot the two people.

Police say they received new information last month which led to their cold case unit obtaining warrants Wednesday. The 33-year-old Bland was arrested this morning in Augusta.

A second suspect in the shootings has yet to be identified.
