A Roxbury man was arrested Friday in connection to a shooting in April that claimed the life of a 74-year-old woman in Mattapan, said Boston police.

Authorities arrested Dane Henry, 23. He has been charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon, and manslaughter, Boston police said in a statement.
