MELROSE, the Bronx — Police arrested another suspect Monday after a body was found on the roof of a McDonald’s in the Bronx, officials said.

The NYPD charged Jonathan Rodriguez, 21, with murder and criminally negligent homicide. Officers previously arrested Ayame Stamoulis, 18, on murder charges. Police are looking for one other suspect.

Police found Richard Hamlet's body wrapped in a plastic bag on the McDonald’s roof on July 15.
