Suspect To Be Arraigned In Convenience Store Robbery-Murder

The suspect in last month’s robbery-murder at a Meriden convenience store last month is back in Connecticut,  held in lieu of $2 million bond for arraignment Friday.

Frankie Resto of New Britain had turned himself in to police in Brooklyn, New York,  after waiving extradition on a warrant for his arrest in the shooting death of Ibrahim Ghazal at the E-Z Mart on East Main Street June 27.

His alleged accomplice,  25-year-old Willie Breyette,  already is in custody.  He was arraigned earlier this month on charges of aiding and abetting first degree robbery and hindering prosecution.
