U.S. Marshal Peter J. Elliott said in November of 2015 the body of Joshua Luckey was found buried in a grave in the backyard of an abandoned house on the 11900 block of Iowa Avenue in Cleveland.
Investigators said Luckey was shot several times.
Elliott said there had been no suspects for this crime until this past week when Watkins was identified.
During the investigation Watkins was found and arrested on March 6 in Atlanta, Ga., according to the news release.
The Atlanta Police Department helped the U.S. Marshals make the arrest.
