Union City murder suspect arrested

UNION CITY, Ga. -- A man accused of murdering a woman in a Union City hotel earlier this month has been arrested.

Irwin Clint Dresbach, 33, was taken into custody Monday night at a motel on Virginia Avenue near Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

U.S. Marshals Supervisory Inspector Jim Joyner said information from the Fayette County Sheriff's Office led agents to the motel. Dresbach was armed when marshals arrived; after a brief standoff and struggle with arresting officers, he was taken away.

Dresbach was wanted in the murder of his girlfriend, 23-year-old Jennifer Ann Gatewood. Union City Police said Gatewood was shot to death in a room at a Garden Inn and Suites.

There was no word of an arrest of Lola Connie Stephens-Smith, Dresbach's accused accomplice.
