An overnight arrest has been made in the murder of a Licking County woman whose body was found in a Super 8 motel last Friday.

28-year-old Jacqueline Coleman was shot and killed at the motel in Heath. Following various phone calls and tips Heath Police and the Columbus SWAT Team have found the main suspect Tuesday night, 24-year-old Michael Robinson, Jr.

"We asked for the help of Columbus PD, and their SWAT Team surrounded that location and he actually fled, fled the house but was apprehended after a short time," says Heath Police Chief, Tony Shepherd.

Robinson was transported to Heath Police Headquarters where he was interviewed by officials.

"He did implicate himself and not so much confess but did acknowledge that he was responsible for her death," says Chief Shepherd.

Robinson is currently being held at the Licking County Jail. Police identify a third individual shown on surveillance as 28-year-old Misti Sanders who was found Tuesday unharmed. However, officials say she was arrested on an outstanding warrant.
