Police say Quentin Robertson is behind bars in Atlanta, Georgia.

Robertson is wanted in connection to his roommate’s death, after a decomposed body was discovered in their Holton Avenue home.

The victim's family says police told them the suspect fled Ohio on a Greyhound bus in late April. The victim's body wasn't found until a month later.

On May 22, a maintenance worker discovered the badly composed body of Michael Freeman hidden inside a closet.  Investigators say Freeman was stabbed to death and say they found physical evidence linking Robertson to the crime.

Freeman's family says news of an arrest is giving them hope that justice will be served.

“These people are cowards...he actually thought he wasn't going to get caught,” said Rose Freeman, the victim’s sister-in-law.

A search warrant revealed investigators found bloody socks and shoes in the suspect's closet.  

10TV has learned Robertson has already waived extradition in Atlanta which means he could be back in Franklin County to answer to the murder charge as early as next week.
