State Police say a suspect is under arrest for the murder of a Meadville man whose body was found along a roadside in Lawrence County.

John Frank Henry Jr., 21, of Meadville is being held in a Columbus, Ohio jail where he awaits extradition to Mercer County to face a charge of criminal homicide.

Police say Henry Jr. is a suspect in the murder of 40-year-old Joseph Detello, whose body was found on November 4 along Young Road in Slippery Rock Township, Lawrence County.

The body was discovered by a passer-by who thought Detello was having car trouble.

The coroner later determined that Detello died as a result of asphyxiation.

According to police, further investigation led them to believe that Detello was murdered along Cottage Road in Jackson Township, Mercer County.

21 News is working to find out if police have a motive for the murder.
