Donell Anderson, the husband of Georgia mom-of-four Imani Roberson, has been arrested and charged in connection with her disappearance and death.

Roberson, 29, had been missing for nearly three weeks before her body was found on Friday, August 4, 2023. She was last seen on July 16 by her mother Clarine Andujar-White, according to PEOPLE. She had been having dinner at her mother’s home with all her children: a one-month-old baby and three children who are 3, 9, and 11 years old. Roberson’s two youngest children went home with her, and the older two spent the night with Andujar-White.

When Andujar-White couldn’t get in touch with Roberson the next day, she reported her daughter missing, and authorities started investigating her disappearance.

Police discovered evidence that made them realize that foul play was involved in Roberson’s disappearance, reported CNN. Blood was found in Roberson’s home in Conyers, a city that’s approximately 25 miles east of Atlanta, and blood was also discovered in multiple other places. A week later, her torched car was recovered in Atlanta.

In a press conference, Rockdale County Sheriff Eric Levett said they wanted to make sure that they had sufficient evidence. They did a thorough investigation and then arrested Anderson for his wife’s murder. Roberson’s parents both spoke at the press conference, with Andujar-White saying the family is devastated.

Anderson now faces charges of felony murder, malice murder, aggravated assault, and possession of a firearm during commission to attempt a felony.

Only a few days later, a second arrest was made in connection with Roberson’s death. Her brother-in-law Cedarius Glaze, 28, was arrested on Tuesday, August 8, and he was charged with helping to hide the victim's body, reported NBC News. He has been charged with concealment of a body, arson, and tampering with evidence.

Levett hopes people will learn from this tragedy. At the press conference, he stated, “If there’s anyone that’s out here that is involved in a toxic relationship, whether you are receiving mental abuse, verbal abuse, or physical abuse, it is not worth keeping quiet, and we need for you to step out and say something so we can end such tragedies like this. These are four kids now without a mother and unfortunately now without a father.”

Roberson’s four children are now being cared for by their grandparents.
