A suspect in a 2016 killing is now behind bars in Hall County after investigators arrested him in New Jersey.

Officials have charged Michael Anthony Dean with murder.

Authorities say Dean fought with and killed a man back in August of 2016 and then hid the body on a vacant lot along Jesse Jewell Parkway near Dorsey Street in Gainesville.

Officers brought Dean back to Hall County this week, after tracking him to new jersey and taking him into custody.
