Man arrested in connection with murder

An arrest has been made in connection to a murder that happened nearly two months ago.

Frankfort Police announced Thursday that the U.S. Marshal's Fugitive Task Force arrested Frank Robert Witkowski in Detroit, Michigan on October 25.

Witkowski is charged with complicity to murder. He's expected to be extradited to Kentucky next week.

An arrest warrant had been issued for Witkowski following the murder of Obie Murphy on September 13.

Murphy was found shot to death on Thistlewood Avenue in Frankfort.

Police are still looking for a person of interest in this case. That person is described as a black man, between 5'10" and 6'0" tall, between 130 and 150 pounds, and is estimated to be in his late 20's to early 30's.

Frankfort Police say he also uses the street name "Q."

Frankfort Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information in this case. You can call them at 502-875-8648, or call Frankfort Police at 502-875-8523.
