A second family member is being charged in connection with the death of Imani Roberson, the Georgia mother of four, whose body was recovered Friday after being missing for more than two weeks, police officials said.

Roberson’s husband, Donell Anderson, has been arrested and charged in connection with her disappearance and death, the Rockdale County Sheriff’s Office said Saturday. Then on Tuesday, investigators received a tip on the whereabouts of a second suspect, whom they identified as Anderson’s brother, 28-year-old Cedarius Glaze, the department said in a news release.

Cedarius Glaze is the second suspect charged in connection with the death of Imani Roberson.

The sheriff’s office said it had “strong evidence” that Glaze played “a key role” in the disposal of Roberson’s body. He was charged with tampering with evidence, concealing a body and setting fire.

Because Glaze’s alleged crimes were committed in South Fulton, his warrants were issued there, officials said. He was transported to South Fulton from the Rockdale County Jail.

As of Wednesday afternoon, CNN was unable to determine if Glaze has legal counsel.

Roberson was last seen in Atlanta on July 16, driving home from her mother’s house with two of her children after dinner. Her mother, Clarine Andujar-White, tried to contact her daughter several times the next day with no response.

Andujar-White eventually visited her daughter’s home in Conyers, a town about 24 miles east of Atlanta, and found it empty.

Authorities began their search on July 17 after Andujar-White reported Roberson missing. After inspecting the house, the investigators immediately became suspicious, the sheriff said: “It was clear that a crime was evident when Imani disappeared.”

Blood was found at Roberson’s home and several other locations, according to the sheriff’s department. More than a week later, Roberson’s car was found after being set on fire.

Donell Anderson has been arrested and charged in connection with the disappearance and death of his wife, Imani Roberson.

According to online Rockdale County records, Anderson was charged with first degree murder, first degree murder and aggravated assault, and possession of a firearm while committing an attempted crime.

Anderson was represented by a public defender at his first court date Sunday morning. The Rockdale County Public Defender’s Office did not comment.

Rockdale County Sheriff Eric Levett told reporters at a news conference Saturday that he could “assure them” that another person was being arrested in connection with the case and that the investigation is still ongoing.

Both of Roberson’s parents spoke during the press conference.

“Last night my worst fears were confirmed and our family is devastated,” said Andujar-White.

The children are now in the care of their grandparents, Levett said on Saturday.
