Joshua Eugene Russell, 24, of Anniston, was charged earlier this month with third-degree burglary. Russell is alleged to have unlawfully entered a home on Altamont Road in Anniston on July 22.
Anniston police Sgt. Josh Doggrell said forensics connected Russell to the crime, which had been unsolved for more than seven months.
Russell was charged in August with shooting and killing Anniston police Officer Justin Sollohub. He’s currently awaiting trial on a capital murder charge.
