A Boston woman has been charged in connection with a shooting seven months ago that left a 33-year-old man dead.

Police say 32-year-old Jocelyn Vasquez faces arraignment in Dorchester District Court on Monday on murder and firearms charges in the May 15 death of Garfield Thomas.

Vasquez was arrested in Stoughton late last week.

Officers responding to reports of a shooting found the victim late in the morning inside his home in the city's Mattapan neighborhood. He was taken to the hospital with a gunshot wound where he was pronounced dead.

Authorities did not disclose what led to the shooting. It was unclear if Vasquez had hired a lawyer.
