A sixth person has been charged with murder in the death last month of a Barrow County woman.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation announced that a murder warrant had been issued for Carolina Jazmin Rodriguez-Ramirez, 28, of Oklahoma, for her involvement in the mid-April murder of 37-year-old Bethlehem resident Rossana Delgado.

Following their arrests, the suspects were transported to detention facilities in Texas, where they remain pending extradition to Georgia.

The GBI has not released a motive for Delgado’s murder.

Authorities said Delgado was last seen alive April 16 in DeKalb County.

The woman was the mother of two children who worked for a taxi service in Gwinnett County, according to the Barrow County Sheriff's Office, which said the woman’s husband reported her missing on April 17.

The husband reportedly tracked Delgado’s phone to a location near Chamblee, where he also found a blood-stained mask.

The GBI said the Gilmer County Sheriff’s Office found Delgado's body 10 days later during a welfare check at a home in the Cherry Log community.

Still at large as of Tuesday were murder suspects Juan Ayala-Rodriguez, 35, of Gainesville, and Mario Alberto Barbosa-Juarez, 29, of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
