A Philadelphia man has been arrested and charged with the murder of a Georgia man in Newton County.

The man, Qualee Fryer, 21, was arrested and charged with the murder of 20-year-old Adrion Simmons, according to Chief Deputy Kris Hollingsworth with the Newton County Sheriff’s Office.

“After having interviewed the suspect, he was charged with murder,” Hollingsworth said.
