A man wanted in connection with the slaying of a Duluth man reportedly has been apprehended in New Mexico, months after an accidental jail release.
According to ajc.com, Robert Sandman, 52, was apprehended Monday in Albuquerque, N.M., by authorities serving a search warrant.
He is wanted in connection with the March slaying of Donald Singer, 57.
Sandman was initially arrested in April in the parking lot of a casino in San Felipe Pueblo, N.M.
After Sandman then was arraigned in New Mexico, there apparently was a foul-up with the paperwork, and the judge ordered his release after 20 days. A spokesperson at the New Mexico jail said then that papers were faxed to Georgia, but no one came to pick Sanderson up.
The body of Singer was found wrapped in a blanket in the garage of his home on Montheath Pass on March 28 by his daughter Jessica Black, who called 911.
