Police in Arizona have apprehended a murder suspect wanted in connection to the shooting deaths of a mother and her daughter across the country.
Joshua Sanders of Birmingham, Alabama, was taken into custody in Arizona on Jan. 12 for allegedly murdering Pamela Harden, 42, and 24-year-old Latorey Harden a week earlier in Vidalia, Georgia, the United States Marshal Service in Arizona said, according to WMAZ-TV.
On Jan. 6, Vidalia police received 911 calls about a domestic dispute and a shooting at a residence. Responding officers found Pamela and Latorey Harden shot. Latorey Harden died at the scene, and her mother later passed away at an area hospital.
After the double homicide, Sanders allegedly stole Pamela Harden’s Nissan Rogue and drove from Georgia to Alabama, where he abandoned the vehicle.
On Jan. 11, the suspect took a bus from Tulsa, Oklahoma, and was heading to Los Angeles, but U.S. Marshal Service deputies apprehended him as he exited the bus at a Greyhound station in Flagstaff, Arizona.
Investigators also seized three guns allegedly in his possession at the time, WMAZ reported.
Sanders was being held in the Coconino County jail while awaiting extradition to Georgia.
He faces charges of two counts each of aggravated assault, felony murder, and possession of a firearm during certain crimes, as well as one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
