Man arrested in girlfriend's shooting death, Orange County deputies say

Marcellus Dion Wright, 33, arrested on murder charge

ORLANDO, Fla. - A man wanted in connection with the November shooting death of his girlfriend in Orange County has been arrested.

The Orange County Sheriff's Office said Thursday that they were searching for Marcellus Dion Wright, 33. He turned himself in to authorities and was booked into jail overnight. 

Wright is suspected in the fatal shooting of Michelle Cohen, who was found unresponsive and suffering from a gunshot wound Nov. 30 in the 4400 block of Seybold Avenue. Officials said Cohen was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.

Cohen leaves behind two daughters.

"There are no winners in situations where tragedies occur like this," said Francina Boykin, Cohen's aunt. "To leave two young girls motherless in such a wicked, wicked world, that is the greatest tragedy."

Boykin said she's relieved that Wright is in jail.

"My niece did not deserve to die. Such a senseless act," she said.

Wright was arrested on charges of second-degree murder and booked into the Orange County Jail.
