DURHAM, N.C. (WTVD) -- Durham police have charged a suspect wanted in a 2022 homicide where the victim was found dead inside the trunk of a car.
On Monday, DPD said Jamaree Green, 20, of Durham, has been arrested and charged with the murder of 39-year-old Jivon Cherry.
Cherry was found dead Sept. 13, 2022, at the Falls Pointe Apartments on Glen Falls Drive, off South Alston Avenue and TW Alexander Drive,
Green was charged with first-degree murder as well as felony conspiracy on June 26. He remained on the loose until Aug. 15 when he was arrested by the Georgia State Patrol for those outstanding warrants.
He was also charged in Georgia for fleeing a traffic stop and leading troopers on a high-speed chase.
On Friday, Durham Police officers brought Green from Georgia to the Durham County Jail. He remains there with no bond.
The discovery caused serious concerns among apartment residents, with one saying he was "shocked." Another resident wondered if they needed to be worried about an escalation in crime.
