Edgar Lugo was arrested for a deadly shooting in Visalia and then released.
The suspect is now back in custody for the same crime.
Visalia police arrested Lugo for the shooting death of Cliff St. Martin back in January.
Police say St. Martin was dating the mother of Lugo's child.
Lugo was arrested after additional information was gathered on the case.
Sgt. Ozzie Dominguez with the Visalia Police Department said, "He was arrested the day of the homicide and he was booked, however, no charges were filed. From that moment on, detectives continued to conduct their investigation, gathering additional evidence."
This was Visalia's first murder of the year.
