The Indiana fugitive wanted on charges of animal cruelty, arson, kidnapping and other offenses turned himself in early Tuesday morning, Spencer County Sheriff Buddy Stump said.

Michael Lynn Grubb, 39, of Jeffersonville, Ind., turned himself in about 3 a.m., Stump said.

The apparent victim, Kirsten Edmondson, 45, of Taylorsville, was safe and unhurt, Stump said. Grubb was thought to have been in Edmondson’s company, Kentucky State Police said Monday.

Grubb was being held in the Shelby County jail because Spencer County doesn’t have a jail.

The Shelby jail site listed Grubb’s charges as first-degree robbery, third-degree arson, first-degree wanton endangerment, kidnapping an adult, second-degree animal cruelty, intimidating a participant in a legal process, possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, and a parole violation.

Grubb was convicted in 2010 in Spencer County on charges of assault, wanton endangerment, tampering with evidence and being a persistent felony offender, according to the Kentucky Department of Corrections website.
