Murder suspect caught in Georgia

According to authorities, 32-year-old Keith Devon Manuel of Fayetteville fled to Georgia after learning the Cumberlan County Sheriff's office issued a first-degree warrant for his arrest.

He is accused of killing his girlfriend, 35-year-old Jessica Morgan.

Morgan's body was found inside her SUV in the town of Stedman on May 29. A passerby noticed the vehicle had been parked along Shelton Beard Road for quite some time and called authorities.

Manuel was found inside a home in College Park, Georgia Tuesday around 11:50 a.m.

He is being held without bond, pending extradition to North Carolina to face murder charges.
