ASHLAND, Ohio (AP) -- Authorities in Ohio say a man suspected of killing his on-and-off girlfriend during a vacation to North Carolina's Outer Banks is now in custody.
The United States Marshals Service says Nathan Summerfield is under arrest after a month-long nationwide manhunt.
Summerfield was wanted on a murder charge in the death of 33-year-old Lynn Jackenheimer of Ashland, Ohio. She disappeared in early July while vacationing with Summerfield and her children. Her body was found in a vacant lot in Frisco, N.C.
Police say Summerfield returned the woman's children to Ashland and drove away.
Summerfield's brother has told authorities that Summerfield said he strangled the woman.
Investigators say she died from strangulation and stab wounds.
