Clayton County Police spokeswoman Marcena Davis said in a news release that Martinez Ponce was charged with malice murder in connection with the death of Robert Page of Morrow.
News outlets report that police searched the surrounding area and viewed surveillance footage from a nearby security camera after a lookout was issued Thursday for Page. The spokeswoman says Ponce was observed on Page's property. Officers located Page's body in the suspect's home.
An investigation is ongoing. It's unclear if Ponce has a lawyer who could comment.
