Lorton man arrested in W.Va. deaths
Authorities say a Virginia man wanted in connection with the deaths of a West Virginia woman and her young son has been arrested.
Berkeley County Sheriff Kenneth M. Lemaster Jr. says Antonio Prophet was arrested late Thursday night in Charlotte, N.C.
Authorities had been looking for the 34-year-old Lorton, Va., man since June 6. That's when authorities discovered the bodies of 22-year-old Angela Devonshire and her 3-year-old son in the garage of their burned-out Gerrardstown apartment.
The U.S. Marshal's Service arrested Prophet outside a Charlotte homeless shelter.
Prophet now faces extradition to West Virginia.
Police have said Prophet and Devonshire had been dating for about two weeks before her death.
