YORK, Pa. (AP) - Authorities say a man wanted in the shooting death of a mother of two in central Pennsylvania over the weekend has been arrested.

Federal marshals said 24-year-old Kameron Orr of York was arrested without incident Wednesday morning in Harrisburg.

Orr is charged with criminal homicide in the death of 27-year-old Ruby Mercado, who was found shot to death Saturday in a van in York.

Friends and relatives held a vigil Monday night at the scene for Mercado, who has an 8-year-old son and a 4-year-old daughter.

Friend Lisa Fetrow called her a devoted mother who was supposed to start a new job Monday.

Orr remained in custody and court documents don’t list a defense attorney who could respond to the charges; a listed number for him couldn’t be found Wednesday.
