Earlier this month, Kelley's friend told Local 6 News that Kelley was trying to escape her boyfriend, Quentin Terrance Woodruff, 29, who the friend said had become abusive.

Police issued an arrest warrant for second-degree murder on July 3 for Woodruff, of Mims.

He was apprehended around 10 p.m. Friday at a business at 7503 U.S. Highway 1.
