Jessica Revelee was 24 when she was found fatally shot in head more than six years ago. Police announced Tuesday they have made an arrest in the killing.
Revelee was killed Jan. 9, 2014. She was shot in the head on McMicken Street in Over-the-Rhine. Officers found her dead in the middle of the street.
Mark Cephas, 26, is charged with aggravated murder in the death. He was taken into custody by the fugitive apprehension squad Tuesday. He has not yet been booked into the Hamilton County Justice Center.
It is unclear what led to his arrest.
Back in 2014, Paul Stiver, her father, said she was struggling with addiction and owned several heroin dealers money.
Police said she was also involved in prostitution. She had been arrested more than 50 times in less than six years.
She was arrested less than a month before she was killed. Stiver told The Enquirer in 2014 she had called him from jail and said she expected to be locked up for a year or more.
But she was released two days later.
"She was a good person, but was addicted to a drug that she couldn't get herself off of," Stiver said at the time. "They released her back to the street... Now she is dead."
