After days of searching, police arrested a suspect in a murder case in Edinburgh in Johnson County.

Edinburgh Police arrested Joseph Simpson, 44, of Fairland, Indiana Friday at 8 p.m.

He's being held at the Johnson County Jail on preliminary charges of murder and unlawful posession of a firearm.

On Tuesday morning, 46-year-old Kay Ellis was found, by her son, slumped over in a chair at her home on North High School Road in Edinburgh.  She had been shot to death.

A neighbor told FOX 59 News that Ellis had filed protective orders against her boyfriend.  Police immediately began searching for him but did not release a suspect name until the arrest Friday night.
