An arrest has been made in the shooting death of Gerald Freeman in March of 2015 on Corning Street in Anderson.

The Anderson County Sheriff’s Office arrested 53-year-old Ralph James Kay and charged him with murder.

Freeman died from multiple gunshot wounds on March 29, 2015.

Deputies say the amount of time between the crime and the arrest is due to the delay in processing and analyzing evidence which takes place off-site.

Sheriff John Skipper says that, “investigators often put in just as much time behind the scenes waiting on laboratory reports as they do conducting interviews.”

Kay is currently being held in the Anderson County Detention Center.
