Local authorities in Dallas, Texas have arrested 24-year-old fugitive Brian Marsh Semrinec for the murder of a 28-year-old Asian American woman named Shuyi Li.
Facing charges of aggravated assault and murder in Georgia, Semrinec was arrested on Monday and is currently being held in the Dallas County Jail without bond.
According to a warrant obtained by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Semrinec is accused of murdering Li “by striking her about the head and neck with a sharp-edged weapon. This caused several very large lacerations to the back of her head and neck, which resulted in Li’s death.”
Police had been searching for Semrinec since the victim was found dead in her home in the 2300 block of Willington Shoals Place in Smyrna, Atlanta on September 18. During the search for the suspect, it was believed that Semrinec was driving Li’s white 2015 Honda CRV. Cobb County police stated that Li’s failure to report to work on that day prompted officers to check up on her.
Semrinec and Li, who once worked for the same company, had been romantically involved and were already living together when the crime happened.
Other details of the case, such as further information about the couple and the suspect’s motive, have yet to be revealed.
