A 23-year-old Ashburn man has been charged with murder in the Jan. 14 death of a man found deceased in the backyard of a Houston County home.
Houston County deputies received information from the Turner County Sheriffs Office during their investigation of 30-year-old Kerry Benald Glenns death, according to a Houston County Sheriffs Office news release.
Glenn, who lived in the 300 block of Ga. 224 West about three miles from Perry, died of a single gunshot wound to the head.
A family friend discovered Glenns body near the back porch while baby-sitting at Glenns home.
Information received from Turner County deputies led investigators to identify Jamarcus Akeem Clark as a suspect, according to the release.
Clark led Turner County deputies and members of the Crisp, Turner and Tift response team on a brief foot chase before he was arrested Sunday, according to the release.
He is being held at the Houston County Detention Center without bond, according to the release.
