Police in Enfield said they made an arrest in the hit-and-run case of a skateboarder last fall.
Rocco P. Barile, 29, was arrested at his home on Friday, according to police.
They said Barile hit and killed 20-year-old Jeremy Mercier back on Dec. 2, 2016.
Mercier was on a skateboard along Route 5 near Orlando Drive when he was struck around 1 a.m.
Mercier's roommate said he was on his way to help him after his truck broke down along Route 5.
The description of the vehicle police had was a Chevy Silverado.
Police eventually obtained an arrest warrant.
Barile was charged with misconduct with a motor vehicle, evading responsibility-death, tampering with physical evidence, failure to renew registration and failure to drive in proper lane.
Police said he's being held on a $175,000 cash surety bond.
