MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

The Montgomery Police Department says it's made an arrest in the April 19, 2013, death of 19-year-old Darryl Morris.

MPD detectives charged Zendarius White, 19, of Montgomery with one count of capital murder. White was taken into custody on Wednesday, May 1. Following his arrest, White was transported to the Montgomery County Detention Facility, where he is being held without bond.
