MOUNT AIRY, Md. — The Carroll County Sheriff's Office has made two arrests in connection to a November 6 murder in Mount Airy.

That morning deputies were called to the 2200 block of Flag Marsh Road, where they found the body of 27-year-old Henry Diaz-Diaz, near a wooded area on the property of a vacant home.

He'd been shot once.

Detectives later charged 38-year-old Carlos Orlando Ventura with first and second-degree murder, assault, and use of a firearm in the commission of a crime of violence.

On March 2, investigators also arrested 31-year-old Marlon Yony Hernandez Rivera in Columbus, Ohio charging him with the same crimes.

He's still awaiting extradition to Maryland.
