The Riley County Police Department says a six-month homicide investigation by detectives led to the arrest of a 32-year-old Manhattan man Friday, in connection to the January murder of 42-year-old Takeera Griffin.
Caleb Perry, already jailed on unrelated charges, now faces charges of first-degree murder, criminal use of a financial card and three counts of interference with law enforcement.
Investigators were dispatched Jan. 8 to the 1300 block of Flint Hills Place for a welfare check. Arriving officers found Griffin dead in her apartment and Perry on scene.
RCPD says Griffin’s death was initially unclear, but an autopsy later determined her death was a homicide.
Perry was issued a bond of $1 million for the new charges and remains confined with a total bond of $1,016,000.
