Evansville police have arrested a second suspect in a murder case from January. 

25 year-old Delvin Mitchell was found shot to death in the 2300 block of Frisse Avenue on January 25th.

Amber Brewer was charged with Mitchell’s murder in September and is being held in Henderson.

Now, the EPD says a joint investigation with the FBI, U.S. Attorney’s Office, Indiana State Police, and the Vanderburgh County Prosecutor’s Office led to murder charges against Brewer’s husband, 32 year-old Justin Robert Brewer.

He’s being held in Knox County.

A dive team recovered a gun from Pigeon Creek last summer that was believed to have been used in the killing.
