Jason Blevins, 34, of Ashland.

ASHLAND Ashland police have made an arrest in the slaying of a woman found in a yard on Marcia Street this past weekend.

Ashland Police Chief Todd Kelley said the suspect is Jason Blevins, 34, of Ashland. He was taken into custody in the homicide of Ericka Spradlin, 29, of Ashland.

“An arrest has been made today after an extensive investigation. A warrant was issued for murder ... He has been arrested and will be incarcerated at the Greenup County Detention Center,” Kelley said.

Spradlin was found in a yard at a home in the 400 block of Marcia on Saturday morning.

Police did not release any further details. It does not appear Blevins has yet been booked in jail. Jail records indicate Blevins was being held on an allegation of murder-domestic violence. There was some discrepancy regarding Blevins’ age. Jail records indicate he is 36.

It was not immediately clear what Blevins’ relationship to the victim is.
