TEMPLE HILLS, Md. — Police in Maryland have charged a man in a 2001 homicide in Temple Hills.

Prince George’s County Police said in a news release Tuesday that 36-year-old Antwan Green of Leesburg, Virginia, was charged this week with first- and second-degree murder.

Detectives say in October 2001, officers found 24-year-old Taj Noble of Reston fatally shot in a field in Temple Hills. Investigators say the shooting began as a dispute over money.

Police say Green, who is in custody in Fairfax County, Virginia, on unrelated charges, is awaiting extradition to Maryland.
