A South Bend man has been charged in a robbery and death.

It happened on February 26 at 2:36 a.m., when police were called to the intersection of West Monroe Street and South Lafayette Boulevard.

That’s where they found 38-year-old Anthony Long, unconscious in his car, with a gunshot wound.

Witnesses say that they saw the suspect, 32-year-old Cecil Huston, shoot Long.

Surveillance video show Huston and a woman in a maroon Ford Fusion after the shooting, driving away.

On June 9, Huston’s girlfriend told police that the two were together the night of the murder.

She had previously lied to police about their whereabouts, on March 2, claiming that Huston threatened to kill her if she said anything.

Now, Huston is being charged with murder, armed robbery, and firearm enhancement.

He was arrested on August 2, in Indianapolis.

His hearing is set for August 23.
