VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WVEC) -- Zorobabel Matthan Griggs, wanted in connection to the death of a Chesapeake woman, has turned himself in.
Virginia Beach police found Overby Staton's body in an apartment in the 700 block of Gourmet Way just after 10 a.m. on June 12.
Keisa's brother-in-law, Nasheen Staton told 13News Now that Griggs was the father of one of her children.
He said the two had a turbulent relationship.
"You never think it's going to go that far, though," said Staton.
Family was left in the dark about police efforts to find Griggs, said Staton.
A search warrant reveals authorities were tracking emails, texts, GPS and other media in an effort to find him.
It was a step toward closure when family found out Griggs turned himself into police.
"We were jubilant," said Staton. "Ya know, we just buried her a couple of days ago and to have him behind bars was actually a relief."
Griggs is facing Murder and Use of a Firearm charges.
He is being held in the Virginia Beach Correctional Center without bond.
