DAILYKENN.com -- A 33-year-old male has been arrested for the 2018 murder of a beloved restaurant owner in Charlotte, North Carolina.
33-year-old Terry Conner Jr. says he is completely innocent, according to reports.
But Conner has a criminal history "including serving 6 years for a home invasion where he shot two people," a report claims.
Dead is Scott Brooks, owner of Brooks' Sandwich House. The restaurant has been a family-owned business for three generations, reports say. The victim was 61-years-old, a report said.

Brooks was shot and killed shortly after arriving at the family-owned restaurant on December 9. According to the time stamp on the video, the suspects were at the restaurant just before 6 a.m. Detectives believe Brooks' killing stemmed from a robbery attempt. Police said Brooks was preparing to open the shop when he was confronted by an unknown suspect.
Scott Brooks' twin brother, David Brooks, spoke to the media hours after he learned of the arrest.
Brooks said while nothing will bring his brother back, he's grateful for CMPD's hard work in solving this case.
"They were absolutely resilient in what they have done and they will not give up," Brooks said. "We've got a force that we can certainly be proud of I will say that."
Brooks said a CMPD detective called him early Wednesday morning to relay the news of the arrest.
"I'm trying to take all of this in a little bit at a time," Brooks said.
