FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. (WJBK) -- Police say a 43-year-old Detroit man was arraigned Tuesday in the robbery-slaying of a 59-year-old owner of a Farmington Hills convenience store.

Prosecutors say Cassalle Nettles was arraigned on six counts including felony murder and armed robbery.

Police say that several other law enforcement agencies helped them make the arrest Monday in the death of Duraid Lossia.

The shooting was reported Saturday afternoon at Tom's Party Store, northwest of Detroit.

A funeral Mass for Lossia was held Tuesday morning at Mother of God Chaldean Catholic Church in Southfield.

Nettles is due back in court on Friday.
