Arrest made over killing of man found in burning home

The victim's body was found after the fire, but the fire didn't kill him.

Police investigating the death of a man found after a fire at his Minneapolis home have made an arrest.

Minneapolis PD announced Wednesday evening that they arrested a 66-year-old man in connection with the killing of Daniel Bradley, 60.

Bradley's body was found following a fire at his 2633 13th Ave. S. home just after midnight on Labor Day.

An autopsy later revealed that Bradley hadn't died in the fire, but before it, ruling his death as having been caused by "complex homicidal violence."

The arrested man was taken into custody in St. Paul Wedneday, with St. Paul PD providing assistance to their Minneapolis counterparts.

He is being held in Hennepin County Jail on probable cause murder.
