The husband of Imani Robinson, the Georgia woman who went missing on July 16, has been officially charged with her murder upon police discovering her body.
As reported by CNN, Donell Anderson is being accused of killing his wife and mother of his children after she mysteriously vanished while driving home from her mother’s house.
When Robinson could not be reached the following day, her mother immediately went to her home where she could not be found. After reporting her missing, the investigation by law enforcement into her house supported the assumption of foul play involved.
Blood was found in numerous areas throughout the her residence in Conyers, an Atlanta suburb. The findings led cops to believe that Robinson was, at the very least, harmed and in danger.
A week after her disappearance, Robinson’s car was found severely burnt, set aflame by who authorities assume is the perpetrator.
The investigation gained significant progress with the finding of Robinson’s body, in which the search greatly benefit from the use of K-9s. Upon her body’s recovery, the Rockdale County Police Department was able to gather enough evidence to validate an arrest warrant on Anderson.
“When that body was found, it was our mission, especially mine, to make sure that we could convince our judges and/or DA’s office that we have enough evidence to secure a warrant and to get him off the street,” declared Rockdale County Sheriff Eric Levett in a statement.
Following his arrest, the sheriff urged individuals in abusive relationships to know that resources are available to avoid tragedies like this as much as possible.
“If there’s anyone that’s out here that is involved in a toxic relationship, whether you are receiving mental abuse, verbal abuse, or physical abuse it is not worth keeping quiet and we need for you to step out and say something so we can end such tragedies like this,” said the sheriff.
Robinson’s parents are “devastated” by the unfolding of this unfortunate event, and are now in custody of her children. To honor her life, a candlelight vigil will be held on August 7.
