The police arrested a 42-year-old man from Meppel on Friday morning. He is suspected of involvement in the murder of then 34-year-old Halil Erol from Steenwijk in 2010. This is the second time this suspect is arrested in connection with Erol's murder, the police said in a statement.
On Thursday the police did a new forensic investigation in the Meppel home where the suspect lived in 2010. He was arrested based on this investigation, the police said.
