An arrest has been made in a Marion County murder investigation.
Issac DuWayne Sheffield, 33, was taken into custody in Georgia and charged with first-degree premeditated murder in the death of Stanley Yassen. Detectives say Yassen, 74, died a violent death inside his Ocklawaha home on the morning of August 28.
According to investigators, Sheffield was inside the victim's home sometime between the hours of 10:45 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. on the date of the murder, which is the window of time in which Yassen is believed to have died.
Detectives say they learned that Sheffield was driving two different vehicles: a beige Ford and a blue Toyota. According to investigators, witnesses say Sheffield washed both vehicles with bleach inside and out the next day, then he parked the Ford in a secluded area. Witnesses also say Sheffield had lacerations on his knuckles.
During the investigation, detectives learned that Sheffield was heading towards Georgia. He was stopped by Toombs County sheriff's deputies in Lyons, Georgia. Sheffield will be extradited to Marion County.
