A man Toledo Police believe is connected to the disappearance of Michigan man Brian Martin is back in Lucas County.

Robert Strauss was booked at the Lucas County Jail Thursday afternoon. Strauss was previously being held in an Indiana jail, charged with false informing after police there say he gave them a fake name.

Toledo Police are charging Strauss and his wife Desirae with the murder of Martin, who has been missing since June 22, when he was last seen in Toledo. Martin's body has not been found, but police say they have evidence to support that Martin was bludgeoned to death in the Strauss' home.

Robert Strauss is scheduled to be arraigned in Toledo Municipal Court Friday at 9 a.m.

Desirae Strauss was extradited to Lucas County last week and was arraigned on July 21.
