U.S. Marshals have located and arrested a couple in Phoenix wanted for the murder of a woman in North Carolina earlier this year.
The agency announced on Tuesday that fugitives Tangela Parker, 50, and Eric Parker, 62, were found around 12:30 p.m. near Deer Valley Road and 35th Avenue after being on the run and wanted since the Jan. 13 for murder of Phelifia Marlow, resident in North Carolina.
“Today marks six months since the tragic murder of Phelifia Marlow,” Chris Edge, acting U.S. Marshal for theWestern District of North Carolina, said in a press release.
“I hope on this day, Phelifia’s family may find closure in knowing the Parkers have been apprehended and will finally answer for their crimes against a beloved North Carolinian.”
Witnesses said Marlow was shot at a furniture plant in Hickory, North Carolina, following a workplace dispute a few days prior.
Authorities said they have worked over 30 leads across eight states before discovering the couple had been residing in a Phoenix home under the alias names of Jason and Elizabeth Reardon.
