Authorities arrested a Metrobus driver near the Pentagon for his alleged involvement in a 2010 slaying that left a Virginia handyman dead.

Stacey Lorenzo Reed was arrested in connection with the slaying of Jose Cardona in May 2010.

Earlier this week, Tasheik Ashanti Champean, 46, pleaded guilty in federal court in Alexandria to conspiring with two others to try and rob a Centreville man at his home because they expected him to be carrying large sums of cash.

During the attempted robbery, they ended up confronting Jose Cardona, a handyman who worked at the home. Cardona, a legal immigrant from Guatemala, died from a gunshot wound to the head.

One of the other men, Reynard Prather of Oxon Hill, Md., was arrested last year and has been sentenced to 30 years in prison.

Champean faces up to life in prison when he is sentenced March 1.
