A 54-year-old man was charged with murder Tuesday just days after the Harlingen Police Department announced he was the suspect in an active homicide investigation.

Jose Isaias Soto Martinez was arraigned by a municipal court judge who did not set a bond for him, according to a Tuesday news release from the Harlingen Police Department.
