BILLINGS -

Twenty-seven year-old Martin Pond is the suspect connected to Friday's homicide in Lockwood, and he turned himself in Saturday night.

According to Yellowstone County Sheriff Mike Linder, Pond's Honda van was located in an outbuilding in Molt around 6:20 Saturday night. As deputies searched the property, dispatchers received a call from the Grace United Methodist pastor. The pastor advised authorities Pond was at the church located on Avenue B, and Pond wanted to turn himself in. Shortly after, Pond was arrested without incident.

The 27-year-old suspect is charged with deliberate homicide. On Friday, authorities were called to a mobile home located on Wasco Avenue in Lockwood, where the body of an older man was located in the yard. Pond will likely appear in justice court on Monday.
