Judge Earl Richards on Monday arraigned Akeem Gayle, 24, of Harding Place, New Haven, and Anthony Johnson, 19, of Highview Terrace, Hamden, on charges of felony murder, first-degree robbery and conspiracy to commit first-degree robbery. Richards increased Gayle’s bail to $2 million.
Gayle has eight years of jail time hanging over his head from two convictions in which he received suspended sentences for drug sales and arson. Johnson, who was held in lieu of $1 million bail, has a minor criminal record.
Through an open, second-floor window on Harding Place, Gayle’s mother said, “He’s a good boy,” but declined further comment. No one answered the door Monday at Johnson’s residence.
