HARRIS COUNTY, TEXAS - A man's been arrested in the shooting of Adrianus Michael Kusuma, the Spring restaurant owner killed last month. 

John Wesley Baldwin is charged with capital murder. Baldwin appeared before a judge in video court Tuesday night.

According to prosecutors, a neighbor was able to take a photo of a suspicious vehicle leaving the neighborhood the night of the murder. That picture helped officers make an ID and arrest Baldwin. 

Deputies found pictures of the restaurant and a text conversation about the burglary and robbery on Baldwin's cell phone.
