HARTFORD, Conn. — A Greenfield man has been arrested and accused of a Jan. 29 murder in Connecticut’s capital.

Jordan Register, 21, of Chapman Street, was taken into custody in Springfield by the Massachusetts State Police Fugitive Unit and Springfield Police Department without incident on Thursday and is being held as a fugitive from justice while awaiting extradition to Hartford. He is being held on a $1.75 million bond.

According to Lt. Aaron Boisvert, public information officer with the Hartford Police Department, patrol officers responded to the Webster Street area on a report of a gunshot victim at 9:31 p.m. on Jan. 29. The victim, later identified as Michael Dudley, 27, of Main Street in Springfield, was located in the rear lot of 12 Webster St., with a gunshot wound. Attempts to save Dudley’s life were unsuccessful and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Hartford Police Major Crimes and Crime Scene Divisions responded and assumed the investigation, Boisvert said.

Register was identified as a suspect during the investigation and probable cause was established, according to Boisvert. A Superior Court judge granted an arrest warrant.
