A Bronx man has been arrested for the homicide of Queens public school teacher David Rangel.

Police have arrested a man for the murder of a public school teacher found strangled to death in his Jackson Heights home earlier this year.

Cecil Golden, 20, of the Bronx, has been charged with first-degree murder and criminal possession of stolen property, said the NYPD.

According to published reports, 53-year-old David Rangel, who was killed on January 27, may have met his murder online.

Following the homicide of Rangel and another Queens gay man in early February,  Councilmember Daniel Dromm and community leaders held a press conference to bring awareness to the dangers of online dating, especially in the LGBT community.

UPDATE: 

Police announced early Thursday morning that a second person has been arrested for the homicide of David Rangel.

Elijah Agyepong, 19, of the Bronx, has been charged with first-degree murder.
