Darren Bingham accused of killing Zachary Gonzales in Yarrow Street murder (63)

Update: On March 6, the family of 21-year-old Zachary Gonzales will be gathering for the sort of event they probably never could have imagined just a week ago -- his memorial service, followed by a funeral the next day.

Gonzales was killed on February 28. But while his loved ones grieve over his loss, they at least know that an arrest has been made in the case. Lakewood police believe Darren Bingham, 32, is responsible for the crime. Details and our original coverage below.
