Cobb police have linked a Stockbridge man to a homicide that took place in Marietta earlier this year.

Johnathan Allan Wheeler, 31, has been charged with aggravated assault and murder in connection to the death of Jerry Moore.

Police say Moore, who was 46, was found stabbed to death in his home on Gracewood Drive in Marietta on Jan. 27.

Wheeler is in custody in Macedonia, Ohio, on unrelated charges.
