The man accused of murdering his wife in Jackson last fall is now in custody.

Police arrested Bobby Montson overnight, after a several month search.

He's accused of murdering his wife, Linda Montson at their Bristol Park apartment in September.

Montson was denied bond by the judge during his initial appearance in Jackson. Linda's friends and family described him as arrogant, and showing no remorse during his court appearance.

"I'm relieved, but he's taking this like it's a joke," said Elizabeth Lacey, the victim's mother. "I mean, my child is dead and he's in there talking like he's going to get off."

"He feels like he's above the law," said Nakia Davis, the victim's daughter. "He feels like he's untouchable, He took our mother from us."

Montson had been on the run since September. The family of the victim says they lived in fear every day.

They also say Linda Montson had filed a restraining order against Bobby, days before she was gunned down in her sleep.

"Her children were in there, they were in the room when he killed her, added Nakia Davis. "I don't know how anybody can do that period. I don't know how they can do that period to another human being."

Montson's preliminary hearing will be held in Hinds county court in the coming weeks.

Linda Montson's family is praying for quick justice.
