State police say detectives began their investigation after receiving a report on July 12, 2017, that Keith Johnson, 22, had been found deceased inside his residence on North Main Street in Londonderry.
The state police worked closely with the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the past year on the investigation, which resulted in the issuance of a federal arrest warrant on June 30 and the subsequent arrest of Slade on Thursday at his home.
Police say Slade was jailed pending his arraignment.
