The man suspected of killing a Newnan woman in Union City in early April was arrested by authorities in Atlanta Monday night.

Irwin Clint Dresbach, 32, was found at a hotel near the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, and he was taken into custody without incident, authorities with the U.S. Marshals Service told reporters with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Dresbach was booked into the Fulton County Jail on charges of murder, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Dresbach was suspected in the fatal shooting of Newnan woman Jennifer Gatewood on April 5. Authorities responded around 4:30 a.m. to the Garden Inn and Suites on Shannon Parkway in Union City to find Gatewood had been fatally shot. Dresbach and Gatewood were allegedly in a relationship.
