Berguin was recorded on surveillance video entering London’s car as the 40-year-old got in and tried to get Berguin out, Sitler said. London was shot during the struggle.

Berguin was arrested in Phenix City, Alabama. and extradited to Columbus.

Investigators say they expect to make additional arrests.
