LITTLE ROCK, ARK. (AP) - Police in Arkansas have arrested a man in the beating death of a popular television anchorwoman last month.

Little Rock detective Mat Nelson says 28-year-old Curtis Lavelle Vance was arrested Wednesday night, but he did not have details.

Earlier Wednesday, police charged Vance with capital murder but offered neither a motive behind the attack nor details about why they suspected him.

Police Chief Stuart Thomas said Vance had fled his Marianna home with a woman and three young children. Vance was believed to be armed.

Twenty-six-year-old Anne Pressly died Oct. 25, five days after being severely beaten in her home. The anchorwoman’s mother found a half-hour before she was due on KATV’s “Daybreak” program after she didn’t answer her wake-up call.
