According to CBS12 police in Palm Beach County, Fl have arrested a sixth individual in connection with the 2017 murder of MMA fighter Aaron Rajman. Alton Anders, 31, was arrested on Monday and charged with first-degree murder, robbery and resisting an officer without violence.

Authorities claim that Rajman was shot and killed in his Boca Raton home on July 3, 2017 after a group of individuals broke in and attempted to steal stores of marijuana and cash. Rajman was 25-years-old at the time of his death.

Austin Baker, 28, Cameron Burgess-Clark, 27, Summer Church, 19, Jace Swinton, 21, and Roberto Ortiz, 20, were previously arrested and charged over this incident.

Church and Swinton accepted plea deals and received 10 year prison sentences for aiding the robbery that lead to Rajman’s murder. Church and Swinton both agreed to testify against Ortiz, who is facing first-degree murder and home invasion charges.

Church told authorities that she used to smoke marijuana with Rajman. She claimed that she and Swinton were in a car with Ortiz when they heard Ortiz call other individuals to organize a robbery attempt against Rajman.

Church, Swinton and Ortiz were arrested a few months after Rajman’s death. Burgess-Clark and Baker were indicted two years later. Both those men were charged with first-degree murder and armed home-invasion.

Rajman, aka ‘The Matza Brawler’, was a member of American Top Team. After a four-year and 7-1 amateur career, Rajman turned pro in 2014.

He made his pro debut with the MTC promotion, beating Anthony Retic by unanimous decision. As a pro Rajman held a 2-3 record. His last fight was on October 14, 2016.
