RICHMOND HILL — More than a year later, a man was arrested and charged last week for the murder of a young man, according to the NYPD.

Last year in April, 20-year-old Branden Santiago from Briarwood was found shot to death with two gunshot wounds to the head in Richmond Hill near 108th Street and 103rd Avenue, police said.

Emergency responders took Santiago to Jamaica Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

On Dec. 17, police re-arrested 37-year-old Sherman Manning, who was already in Rikers Island serving time for another crime, and charged him with murder, criminal possession of a weapon and menacing, according to police officials.
