A 27-year-old Ohio man was wanted in connection to a 2016 fatal shooting and officials say they have finally caught the suspect.
In 2019, Devon Cox, 27, was indicted and wanted by the Fairborn Police Department for a homicide in November 2016, the U.S. Marshals Service said.
While they did not specifically state which murder Cox was wanted for, court records show Cox was charged with aggravated robbery related to an incident on Nov. 20, 2016, the Journal-News reported.
On that date, 23-year-old Jarrel Plummer was shot in an apartment in Fairborn, officials said. He was shot in the head and chest after a robbery, the Journal-News stated.
Plummer was taken to a local hospital, where he died, police said.
In 2016, police identified Cox and Rashawn Cochran as persons of interest in the homicide case and both of them were charged with aggravated robbery, according to the Journal-News.
Cochran was arrested in August 2019 after being on the run for two years, police said. He pleaded guilty in 2021 and was sentenced to 20 years in prison.
