ANDERSON, Ind. (WISH) — The U.S. Marshals Service arrested a man in Mississippi on Wednesday for his alleged involvement in an Anderson homicide, the Anderson Police Department said Thursday.

On June 27, Anderson officers went to a home in the 1000 block of West 13th Street to investigate a death. That’s on the west side of the city.

Upon arrival, the officers found 41-year-old Timothy Kates dead in the house.

During their investigation, detectives identified two suspects, Roger Rodriguez and Demarcus Davis.

On July 16, the Muncie Police Department arrested Rodriguez at a traffic stop and he was taken to the Madison County jail.

On Wednesday, U.S. marshals arrested Davis in Mississippi. He was to be taken to the Madison County Jail.

Both Rodriguez and Davis were “facing future charges regarding the death,” the Anderson Police Department said in a Thursday release.
