Pair wanted in Md. slaying arrested near Newark
A man and woman wanted in connection with a fatal shooting in Maryland were arrested south of Newark and face murder charges.
Delaware State Police said Monday that 36-year-old Larence Godfrey and 41-yearold Michelle Godfrey, of Washington D.C., are in custody in Delaware pending extradition to Maryland.
Police said the pair were arrested Saturday after their vehicle, an orange Chevrolet
HHR, was seen outside an apartment complex on Four Seasons Parkway. Troopers pulled over the vehicle and took them into custody without incident.
The Godfreys are charged with murder in the Dec. 28 shooting death Friday of 31-year-old Eric Smith Jr. of Seat Pleasant, Md., located just outside Washington, D.C. Police in Maryland say the shooting stemmed from an ongoing dispute between Larence Godfrey and the victim.
In 2014, Larence Godfrey was arrested after police said he escaped a minimumsecurity prison for several hours.
