GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) - A soldier stationed at Fort Carson, Colo., charged in the death of a woman last week has been arrested in North Carolina.
Greenville police say they were told by authorities in Colorado Springs that the suspect might be in the area.
Twenty-four-year-old Montrell Lamar Anderson Mayo surrendered to officers at the Pitt County magistrate's office Sunday afternoon.
Mayo is charged with first-degree murder for a death that occurred last Thursday or Friday. Greenville police did not have details on the victim.
Colorado Springs detectives are expected in Greenville this week.
Colorado Springs police were called to a hotel Sunday morning and found a dead woman. An autopsy was planned Monday to determine the cause of death.
It was not clear if Mayo has an attorney.
