A missing Georgia woman’s body has been discovered and authorities announced her husband has been arrested in connection with her murder.

Rockdale County Sheriff Eric Levett said at a recent news conference that Imani Roberson was last seen on July 16 while having dinner at her mother’s house with her four children.

Roberson left that night with her 3-year-old and 1-month-old children and her other two kids stayed at her mother’s home, officials said.

Her mother, Clarine Andujar-White, called Roberson several times the next day, but she didn’t answer, police said. Andujar-White then went to her daughter's home to check on her, but she once again didn’t answer.

Andujar-White called the Rockdale County Sheriff’s Office to report her daughter missing. According to authorities, the two speak daily, and the concerned mother said it was unlike her daughter not to respond.

Levett said detectives began investigating and conducted several search warrants, including at Roberson’s home where she lived with her husband, Donell Anderson. Investigators suspected foul play after they found blood evidence at the residence, according to Levett.

On July 27, officials found Roberson’s torched Mazda SUV in southwest Atlanta, about 30 miles from her home in Conyers, WXIA-TV reported.

On Aug. 4, deputies used cadaver dogs to find a body, which was later identified as Roberson’s. That same day, police arrested Anderson at an apartment in Atlanta, officials said.

Anderson was charged with malice murder, felony murder, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony, authorities said. He is being held without bond.

Levett said additional charges are possible and he can “assure” there will be another arrest in this case.

The four children are reportedly in their grandparents’ care, officials said.

At the press conference, Andujar-White said, “When I couldn’t reach Imani almost three weeks ago, I knew something was wrong. Late last night, my worst fears were confirmed, and our family is devastated."
