St. Petersburg police have made an arrest in the death of a man found nearly a year ago in a back yard.
Oscar F. Fowler, 39, 4643 5th Ave. S., was arrested this afternoon at his home and charged with first-degree murder, police said.
On July 28, the body of Naykee Demetruis Bostic, 32, of St. Petersburg was found with multiple gunshots to the upper body. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Detectives think Fowler killed Bostic in retaliation after the victim tried to rob him. They also believe the killing is drug-related.
