Suspect in northwest Atlanta slaying arrested in Texas

A man wanted for allegedly beating a northwest Atlanta woman last week and killing her boyfriend was arrested Tuesday in Texas.

According to the U.S. Marshal’s office and Atlanta police, Nadia Boukari was found beaten at her home Atwood Street on March 26.

Boukari was able to tell police that a suspect named Otis Redmon had shot her boyfriend, Keith Robinson, in the head with a shotgun and placed his body into Boukari’s car, authorities said.

A bystander had observed Redmon beating Boukari with the butt of a shotgun and then running over her as he fled the scene in Boukari’s car.

Police quickly located Boukari’s car in a vacant lot on Ezra Church Road, and Robinson was found dead behind a nearby home.

U.S. Marshals tracked Redmon to a hotel in San Antonio, and he was arrested Tuesday morning.
