A Cricket Wireless clerk Khamis A. Saed was found shot to death in the backroom of a store at 5116 Bristol on August 15, 2009.

Now police believe they've found the man who killed Saed. Corey L. Walton, 29,  was charged Wednesday with second-degree murder, first-degree robbery and two counts of armed criminal action.

Saed, 23, died from a gunshot wound to the chest.

A fingerprint found on the store's cash register led police to Walton.

Police caught up with Walton on August 21, and he confessed to taking

part in killing Saed. Walton claimed that he and another man cased the

Cricket store to see how many people were inside.

Walton left

and returned with an unnamed accomplice, who supposedly shot Saed when

he reached for his waistband. Walton told police that Saed ran to the

back of the store, and his accomplice ordered him to take the cash

register. Walton said was going to take the register, but a customer

came into the store, foiling his plan.

Walton also confessed

to robbing several businesses on August 15, including a Cricket

Wireless store at 6416 East Truman Road and a Naughty But Nice porn

shop at 8910 East 40 Highway.

A witness told police that

he/she drove Walton and an accomplice to the three stores, but didn't

know anything about the robberies.
