BOSTON — Boston police have made an arrest in the 2015 killing of a Framingham man at a hospital.

Police say Hameen Edwards, of Dorchester, was taken into custody Friday on an active murder warrant for the death of 50-year-old John Duggie.

Police say staff members at Arbour Hospital in the city’s Jamaica Plain neighborhood found Edwards kneeling over Duggie, who had suffered a head wound, on July 2, 2015. Duggie died of his injuries a month later.

Edwards is due in court on Monday. It couldn’t be determined Saturday if he has an attorney.
