More than three months after Marvine Bailey was gunned down in a drive-by shooting on Forsyth Street, Columbus police on Saturday arrested a suspect in the slaying.

Anthony Deshon Walker, 22, was arrested without incident at a home on Fairview Drive and booked into the Muscogee County Jail, police said. A Recorder’s Court hearing is set for 9 a.m. Monday.

Walker had been a suspect for sometime in connection with the case, police said.

Bailey, 47, of Columbus was shot about 7:53 p.m. near 2318 Forsyth Street on Jan. 25. She was pronounced dead at Midtown Medical Center about 25 minutes later.

A relative said the mother of three and grandmother was moving from one house to another when she was shot in the chest.

Bailey was a cook at Houlihan’s restaurant.
