FAIRMONT, W.Va. — A man wanted for questioning in connection with a Pittsburgh area murder case was arrested Monday afternoon in Fairmont, authorities said.
Justin Elliot Bartlett, 25, was taken into custody near the Rite Aid at about 1:15 p.m., the Marion County Sheriff’s Department said.
Allegheny County (Pa) police want to question Bartlett about the Saturday murder of Linda McGinnis. The 63-year-old was found dead in her Brackenridge, Pa., home. She had been stabbed to death, police said.
Bartlett was arrested Monday on outstanding warrants from a November case.
It’s also believed Bartlett spent part of the weekend in Mannington. He was spotted outside a grocery story Saturday. He may have spent the night at Katy Baptist Church. His car was recovered by police.
Few details were available Monday afternoon about Bartlett’s arrest in Fairmont.
