Marcus died in hospital six days after being beaten and set on fire.
A Baltimore County man has been arrested and charged in the beating death this month of a man found by firefighters in his burning Mount Vernon apartment, police said.
Zukael Stephens of the first block of Stockmill Road near Randallstown was arrested Friday in an apartment in the 6700 block of Townbrook Drive in Woodlawn, said Detective John Madigan of the Regional Warrant Apprehension Task Force.
Stephens, 29, is accused of fatally beating Marcus Rogers, 26, of the 1010 Regency Apartments in the 1000 block of St. Paul St. on the night of Oct. 11 and setting Rogers and his apartment on fire cover up the attack, police said. A motive remains unknown.
Rogers lingered in critical condition in the burn unit at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center before dying Oct. 17, police said.
Police said Stephens was being held without bail at Central Booking and Intake Center.
