Hartford Police say they’ve arrested a Bridgeport man in the death of a Hartford man who died after suffering a knife wound last month.  Police found the body of 43-year-old Eugene Tobin at 165 Wethersfield Avenue.  He was pronounced dead at Hartford Hospital a short time later.

Police subsequently issued an arrest warrant for 42-year-old Dennis Hanton of Bridgeport,   and distributed the information through the FBI’s National Crime Information Center. 

Police in Philadelphia detained him based on the NCIC information, and he was extradited to Hartford this week and arraigned.  He’s held in lieu of $1.5 million bond.
