A man suspected in the killing of a Marshfield man was in custody Sunday after police action in Dorchester this weekend.
Boston police and the city’s SWAT team played a role in arresting 39-year-old James Ferguson on Saturday, police said Sunday. Ferguson used to live in Marshfield, but was living in Dorchester at the time of his arrest, Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy Cruz said at a press conference.
Ferguson was being held on $5 million bond and was set to be arraigned Monday in Plymouth District Court on murder and robbery charges, police said in a press conference.
The arrest stems from the killing of 43-year-old Robert McKenna, of Marshfield, in the early morning hours of Wednesday Sept. 17. Investigators previously called the slaying at McKenna’s Marshfield home “horrific," according to reporting from CBS Boston.
