A third suspect has been arrested in connection with the murder of an Annandale man.

The Wright County Sheriff's Department has arrested 22-year-old Gray Soltis in the death of 42-year-old Kyle Greene.

Soltis was booked into Wright County Jail early Wednesday morning for probable cause second-degree murder, first-degree robbery and fleeing the police in a motor vehicle. At this point, he has not been formally charged.

Soltis' arrests comes after two suspects were charged in connection with Greene's death.

Police Chief Jeff Herr says officers were called around 8 a.m. Saturday to a home on Poplar Avenue North, where they found Greene's body. The Midwest Medical Examiner’s Office ruled his death a homicide.

On Sunday, 19-year-old Tyler James Fisher of Annandale and 19-year-old Samara Leigh Juhl of Otsego were arrested. They are both facing charges of aiding and abetting the murder.

A criminal complaint says Fisher told investigators three other people went to Greene's house to rob him of drugs and money and that one of the three fatally shot him.

The Annandale Police Department and the Wright County Sheriff's Office are investigating. Anyone with information about Greene's death is asked to call Annandale Police or the Wright County Sheriff's Office at 763-682-1162.

The family of Greene sent the following statement:

The family of Kyle Greene would like to thank those who expressed their condolences and offered their prayers and well wishes for our beloved family member. We will not give interviews as we wish to cooperate with the Annandale Police Department and the Wright County Sheriff's Office, as well as any assisting law enforcement agencies, in their ongoing investigation. We recognize that in our small community where people care about each other, it is natural to try and get answers to make sense of any tragedy. We are learning that you simply cannot make sense out of a senseless tragedy like this. We thank everyone, especially the media, for respecting our privacy and allowing us to grieve and heal as a family during this very difficult time.
