TERRE HAUTE — Five people have been arrested in connection with a Nov. 8 homicide in Terre Haute.

Four of those people were located in Texas and have been brought back to Indiana to face charges. All five are incarcerated in the Vigo County jail.

Cody D. Thompson, 29, appeared via video today in Vigo Superior Court 1 on a charge of possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, a class-C felony. According to a probable cause affidavit, he was in possession of a firearm at a home in the 2200 block of First Avenue on the day that Ronald Arrowsmith was found dead in the home’s basement. He was arrested Saturday in Terre Haute.
