Posted by Charles Gazaway - email

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A man wanted for the murder of a Louisville woman two weeks ago has been arrested in Frankfort.

44-year old Juan Tolentino is accused of killing 30-year-old Jamie Jackson on April 23. Jackson's body was found in an alley near 25th and Owen Streets. Investigators believe Tolentino and Jackson were involved in a relationship.

Jackson's death is believed to be the result of a domestic violence attack.

Officer Phil Russell, a Louisville Metro Police spokesperson, tells WAVE 3 that Tolentino was arrested without incident. He is now charged with one count of murder and is being held in the Franklin County Detention Center while waiting to be returned to Louisville for arraignment.
