(LEX 18) — A Michigan man who fled to Franklin County while wanted on a murder charge in his home state has been sentenced to three years in prison for other crimes he committed.

Martez Ford was arrested as he was shopping at a Frankfort gas station back in May.

US Marshals said he is charged with premeditated murder in Detroit, Michigan.

Last Friday, Ford pleaded guilty to multiple Class D felonies.

He had been wanted for killing a man in Detroit and setting his body on fire to destroy the evidence. A joint sting operation between local and federal authorities caught up to him in Franklin County.
