Police have made an arrest in the death of a woman found unresponsive in her Norwalk condominium in June.

Authorities said Tuesday that 43-year-old James Cunningham is charged with murder and larceny in connection with the June 17 death of 52-year-old Marian Alexander. Her car was also missing. Cunningham is already behind bars serving a three-year sentence in an unrelated case.

An autopsy determined that Alexander's death was a homicide caused by neck compression.

Investigators developed Cunningham as a suspect in the killing, and earlier this month obtained a warrant for his arrest.

A judge on Tuesday raised Cunningham's bond from $750,000 to $1 million given his criminal history and the seriousness of the charges he's facing.
