A 21-year-old Haverhill man has been charged in the 2017 murder of Bradford’s Bryce Finn, Essex County District Attorney Jonathan W. Blodgett and Haverhill Police Chief Alan R. DeNaro said Friday.

Joseph Maxwell Benner is the fourth suspect facing charges in the shooting death of Finn, who was gunned down on his Rainbow Drive doorstep just days after graduating from Haverhill High School.

As WHAV previously reported, three Delaware men—Nicholas Mandato, Thomas Warner and Kenneth Pitts—were indicted by an Essex County grand jury for Finn’s murder in October. Mandato and Warner are additionally charged with armed assault with intent to rob Finn.

Currently serving a sentence in Middleton’s House of Corrections on unrelated charges, Benner is to be arraigned in Haverhill District Court Tuesday.
