NORWALK, Conn. (WTNH) — A Norwalk man serving time in jail was brought outside prison walls on Tuesday, only to be taken to the Norwalk Police Department and charged for allegedly murdering a woman in June.

For months police have been investigating the death of Marian Alexander, found dead in an apartment on Arch Street on June 17. Officers initially responded to a medical call, but found her dead and determined it was suspicious. Alexander’s car was missing, police said.

The next day, the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner ruled Alexander’s death a homicide. Investigators determined James Cunningham was a suspect.

Following numerous interviews, forensic evidence and help from the community, police obtained an arrest warrant for Cunningham on Nov. 2.

Cunningham was already in jail on unrelated charges on Tuesday, when police brought him in to be charged with killing Alexander. According to officials, Cunningham is charged with murder and second degree larceny. His bond was set at $750,000.
