CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Following a brief manhunt, U.S. Marshals and Cleveland police tracked down a suspect who's wanted in connection with the murder of Miriam Johnson--a Cleveland Heights mother who was found shot, stabbed and stuffed in a garbage can.
The warrant was issued for 35-year-old Yaphet Bradley for aggravated murder by Cleveland Heights police this week.
Bradley, who was Johnson's ex-boyfriend, was found and arrested at the Shaker Square CVS parking lot on Friday evening.
Bradley is charged with aggravated murder, gross abuse of a corpse and tampering with evidence.
The Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force issued the following after the arrest:
The young mother of four was found on March 22 outside of a vacant home on Chamberlain Avenue.
