An  arrest has been made in relation to a 2010 murder of a Fort St. James resident in Prince George.

On July 9, 2010, Tyrone Myles Thomas was stabbed to death outside a 7-Eleven in Prince George.

Thomas, 39, had recently moved to Fort St. James.

A 20-year-old man was arrested on Feb. 14, 2014 in Victoria, B.C. in connection to the incident.

A charge of second degree murder has been approved against the suspect, but his name can not be released because the suspect was 16 years old at the time of the incident.

Police are still looking to identify a witness at the scene. Investigators believe that an adult male driver of a pick-up with boat and trailer was in the store at the time of the incident. He left the store under the belief that his boat was being vandalized. He drove away before the arrival of police. Investigators would like to speak to this witness and are asking him to contact the Serious Crime Unit at (250)561-3300. It is believed that he may not live in the Prince George area.
