Police have made arrests in the murder of an Albany businessman.

21-year-old Demicky Rogers and 22-year-old Kenzell Walker were arrested Tuesday in connection to the murder of 55-year-old Barry Kerper.

22-year-old Carl Randle, who is also being charged in the murder of Kerper, was already in jail on unrelated charges.

Randle and Walker are charged with murder and armed robbery. Rogers is charged with party to the crime.

In November of 2015 Kerper was shot through the glass door of his business on Palmyra Road shortly before 12:30 in the morning by a man police say Kerper had refused to let inside.

Prosecutors said Kerper was operating illegal gambling machines.
