The Rockdale County (GA) Sheriff’s Office arrested the husband of Imani Roberson and charged him with her murder.
After a weeks-long search, authorities found the body of Roberson, 29, who was originally reported missing by her mother Clarine Andujar-White on July 17.
During a press conference on Saturday, the sheriff’s office announced the arrest of Roberson’s husband, 22-year-old Donell Anderson.
Anderson was taken into custody during a SWAT team raid on Friday, Aug. 4. He is charged with felony murder, malice murder, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during a felony, according to reports.
Sheriff Eric Levett said another arrest is expected soon.
Andujar-White said she last saw her daughter when they had dinner with Roberson’s 4 children on July 16.
She filed a missing persons report 10 days before Roberson’s burned out car was found in a wooded area.
Roberson recently gave birth to her fourth child.
Sheriff Levett said he believed Roberson’s death was the result of domestic violence. He said her death is among 4 or 5 domestic violence murders in Rockdale County this summer.
“We’ve had to 4 to 5 murders and every last one of them have been domestic family violence related,” he said.
A study by the U.S. Department of Justice found domestic violence increases by 12 percent during the hot summer months across the United States.
