Man Arrested in Connection with Taylor Mill Woman's Death

A man is now behind bars in connection with the death of a woman in her Taylor Mill apartment last week.

Lamon Brandon Johnson was arrested Monday morning by the U.S Marshals' fugutive task force in Cincinnati where he is being held at the Hamilton County Detention Center.

Johnson, 40, is facing multiple outstanding warrants in Ohio and Kentucky. Once those cases in Ohio are cleared up, he will be extradited to Kentucky to face charges of first degree fleeing police and fourth degree assault.

He does not face any charges in the death of Trina Coleman, 34, who was found dead inside her Sharon Drive apartment early Wednesday morning. Taylor Mill Police said late last week that ivestigators wanted to speak with Johnson as he may be the last person to have seen Coleman alive. He is believed to be an ex-boyfriend of Coleman.

The investigation into her death continues.
