Investigators have arrested a Georgia man in the slaying of a Dothan man who was shot in the head in October outside his Woodham Road home.

Marcus Hubbard, 49, was arrested Wednesday after police searched his residence in Douglas County, Georgia.

Drugs were found in the home.

Police believe Hubbard was in town visiting the victim, Rodney Caliste, when the slaying occurred. Police have not ruled out the possibility that the murder was drug-related.

Caliste, 38, was found dead at 10:20 p.m. Oct. 24 outside of his home. Officers found a pistol on the ground near his body.

Caliste, known for his ties to the Atlanta area, was convicted of trafficking cocaine in 2006 in Houston County. He was sentenced to probation, according to court documents.

Dothan police worked with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office to find and arrest Hubbard.

Officials are working out the details of Hubbard’s extradition to Houston County.

The investigation is ongoing and additional arrests could be forthcoming.
