Police in Norwalk have made an arrest in the killing of a man back in 2012, the second arrest this week in cases featured on Connecticut's so-called cold case playing cards.
Hakeem Atkinson, 22, was arraigned Thursday on a charge of murder in the February 2012 death of Joseph Bateman.
Bateman's death was described on a playing card in a deck offered for sale to prison inmates as part of an effort to generate tips.
An arrest was made Tuesday in another Norwalk case featured in the deck, the 2010 death of Michael Robinson Jr.
Atkinson's bond was set at $1 million.
His lawyer had pressed for a lower amount, noting that Atkinson turned himself in after learning of the warrant for his arrest.
The Associated Press wire services helped contribute to this report.
