BERKELEY -- Two people have been arrested in connection with a February homicide, police announced Wednesday.

Berkeley residents Michael Diggs, 28, and Kneitawnye Sessoms, 40, were arrested Tuesday. Both face murder charges in the death of 54-year-old Sylvan Fuselier, police said.

Fuselier was found dead Feb. 28 at his apartment on the 1100 block of Addison Street after police were asked to conduct a welfare check on the Berkeley resident. According to police, a friend had become concerned that they had not seen the man in some time.

Police said a subsequent investigation led detectives to determine that Fuselier had been murdered, but police are not yet releasing his cause of death or his relationship to Diggs and Sessoms.
