Police say they’ve tied Griffith to the vehicle used in the hit and run murder. Just hours after the discovery of Lemons’ body, Griffith posted photos of him and the victim on his Facebook page.

“We’re still collecting some evidence and putting some pieces together,” said Sgt. Ashley Peters. “But we know that Mr. Griffith was in some shape or form involved in a relationship with Ms. Lemons.” 

Police arrested Griffith for First-Degree Murder. Peters said they took him into custody around 1 p.m. Wednesday.
