A Yazoo City man wanted for the murder of his wife has been arrested in Jackson after evading authorities for over four months.
Bobby Montson, 44, is charged with the murder of Linda Montson, 40, on Sept. 12 in Bristol Park Apartments on West County Line Road in Jackson.
Linda Montson died from multiple gunshot wounds. The mother of four had recently celebrated her 40th birthday. She had been married to Bobby Montson for around 10 years.
Bobby Montson fled the scene and has been on the run until he was arrested by Jackson police officers Wednesday in a Jackson hotel.
He was believed to be in Yazoo City at one point. The Yazoo County Sheriff’s Department was part of a regional task force searching for the suspect. On October 12 police officers found his abandoned car in Chicago.
Montson was denied bond in his initial court appearance. He denied killing his wife when questioned by television reporters while being led away from the courtroom.
