New charges have been filed for the robbery and murder of a Cleveland corner store clerk from 2010.

The charges come for the death of Nashad Atallah. He was murdered at his store, Slameh Market, at West 35th and Daisy.

Cuyahoga County Prosecutors have indicted Jose Rodriguez and an accomplice. And they have dropped charges against a man who was indicted for the killing a year ago. Those charges were just dismissed.

Prosecutors say the first suspect made statements to investigators implicating himself and recently new information came to light leading to the other suspects.

There could still be more new arrests.
