A 32-year-old Wilmington man faces two counts of murder in connection with the killing of Joseph and Olga Connell in 2013.

New Castle County Police arrested Aaron Thompson of Wilmington on Friday afternoon after the Delaware Attorney General’s office identified him as a suspect in the double murder. 

Joseph and Olga Connell were killed outside their home at the Paladin Club apartments in September 2013. Nearly a year later, two men were arrested and charged with the killings in September 2014. 31-year-old Christopher Rivers and 23-year-old Dominique Benson were charged in the deadly shooting.

Thompson is being held without bail at the Sussex Correctional Institution.
