Suspect jailed in cemetery slaying

COLUMBUS, Ohio – A 19-year-old suspect is behind bars in the murder of a man outside Green Lawn Cemetery last week but a second suspect remains at large.

The Franklin County sheriff’s office SWAT team arrested Dasean Battle yesterday on aggravated murder and robbery charges.

Battle is accused of gunning down Akeem Johnson, 21, during a robbery last Monday but a second suspect, Derrick Robinson, is on the lam, Sheriff Zach Scott said.

Scott says Battle and Robinson lured Johnson to the area of the cemetery on Greefield Drive where they attacked and robbed him. When Johnson ran away, Battle allegedly chased him and shot him to death near the gates of the cemetery where his body was found by Ohio Hospital Psychiatry workers.

Deputies arrested Battle at the South Park apartments Tuesday. Robinson has been charged with aggravated robbery and remains on the loose.
