Troy Arrighi, 37, of 400 East 30 St., was arrested at his home around 3 p.m. yesterday. According to police, Arrighi was involved in an attempted robbery that quickly turned to murder in 1994. Investigators said on March 22, 1994, two men entered the Diamond Trucking Company at 174 Cabot St. in West Babylon and shot two employees. They classified the case as an attempted robbery at the time. 30-year-old Mario Andujar died at the scene, while a second victim survived the shooting, cops said.
A report published in Newsday said that Andujar was working in the back of the business with another mechanic, Juan Garcia, when two men in black ski masks confronted them. According to the report, Garcia told reporters that he believed the robbery was a hoax at the time and was shot in the leg by one of the masked men.
Arrighi was charged with second-degree murder. He is scheduled to be arraigned Friday at First District Court in Central Islip.
