Posted: Updated:

Officials have made an arrest in connection to a Saturday night murder in Johnston.

Johnston police were called to the Providence Pointe apartments at approximately 8 p.m. on Saturday night on reports of gunshots.

Agnes Yarlee, 34, has now been identified as the victim who died from a gunshot wound injury.

On Sunday evening, U.S. Customs alerted the Johnston Police Department that Abraham Roberts was taken into custody at the Canadian border in International Falls, Minnesota, attempting to cross into Canada.


A Johnston woman is dead, and police are looking for the person responsible for her death.

Police responded to the Providence Pointe apartment complex around 8:00 p.m. Saturday.

When police arrived, they found a woman dead.

Police issued a material witness warrant for a person of interest in the homicide.

They say if you see 38-year-old Abraham Roberts, use caution, because he may be armed.

Dan Hedrickson of WHO-TV initially reported this story.
