A man was indicted on murder charges Wednesday in connection to an East Price Hill shooting death last year.

Michael Prewitt, 40, is charged in the Dec. 8 shooting death of Kesha Jendrysik.

Cincinnati Police found Jendrysik, 40, shot inside a Purcell Avenue home. Police believed the suspect was cornered in a house near the scene and called in SWAT units. They later found the house to be empty.

Prewitt was arrested by investigators in early February after the Cincinnati Police Department received a tip that Prewitt was in Orlando. CPD partnered with U.S. Marshals to locate and arrest the suspect.

Prewitt will be extradited back to Ohio, according to a release from the U.S. Marshal Service.

Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office, Butler County Sheriff’s Office, Colerain Township Police Department, Newtown Police Department and Warren County Prosecutor’s Office assisted U.S. marshals in the arrest.
