Andrew Robert Levene was arrested Monday and charged with federal murder, robbery and firearm offenses in the Dec. 8 shooting of 65-year-old Yekutiel Zeevi, the owner of YZ Manufacturers LLC.
Weeks after a Westport jeweler was gunned down in his shop, authorities have made an arrest in connection with the case in Spain.
Police say the man suspected of killing a Westport, Conn. jeweler last week was seen in Philadelphia three days earlier, possibly casing stores.
On Friday morning, Yekutiel Zeevi was shot dead inside his own business – YZ Jewelers in Westport. Police are still searching for a suspect.
The crime scene inside YZ Jewelers is located behind two security doors and a battery of aging security cameras. The local police have begun releasing images it hopes will crack the case.
