A Michigan man accused of murdering his sister and her boyfriend then dumping their bodies in his father’s shed has been arrested after he fled to Ohio.

Robert Marzejka Jr., 24, was taken into custody Wednesday in Cincinnati and named suspect in the double homicide of his sister Danielle Marzejka, 18, and her boyfriend, Seren Bryan, 19, police said.

The couple, who lived with Danielle’s father in Clinton Township, went missing on Thursday. 

When her father had not heard or seen from the couple by Saturday, he filed a missing persons report. 

The evening after the report was filed, another one of Danielle’s brothers, who also lives at family’s residence, noticed a strong odor coming from outside the mobile home. Robert did not live there.

When the brother opened the shed, he discovered unusual ‘heavy-duty, black, contractor-style trash bags,’ according to M Live. Inside the first bag he opened, he found an arm. 

The bodies were later identified as Danielle and Seren. The autopsy reports have not yet been released.

Robert was named suspect in their deaths on Monday, after he fled the state.

Police set out on a search Monday, which ended on Wednesday, when he was found in Ohio.

Police said Robert’s car was found abandoned in Toledo before he was tracked down in Cincinnati. He is currently being held at Ohio’s Hamilton County Jail.

Macomb County Circuit Court records state that Robert was petitioned in 2015 to receive court-initiated treatment for mental illness.

His arraignment date has not yet been announced.

And on July 28, her boyfriend, Seren, posted a profile photo of himself with a knife in hand.

He shared a concerning status to his public page a few days prior which read: ‘Someone stab me in the nose with a needle.’  

Another status he wrote that week said: ‘If I had a superpower I would want it to be the ability to kick my own f***ing head off.’
