A Medford man was arrested Thursday for allegedly killing a 26-year-old woman in her Mastic Beach home seven years ago, Suffolk County police said.

William Hubbard was charged with second-degree murder in the death of Shanell Malave.

Homicide Squad detectives alleged the 48-year-old suspect killed the victim at her Magnolia Drive home, where officers responding to a report of an unresponsive woman found Malave dead in her bed at 1:20 p.m. Tuesday, May 24, 2011.

The Suffolk County Medical Examiner’s office later determined that Malave’s death was a homicide.

Hubbard was taken into custody on County Road Route 111 in Manorville at 7:30 p.m. Thursday. He was held overnight and is scheduled to be arraigned Friday at Suffolk County court in Riverhead.
