CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Federal marshals have arrested a man wanted for the shooting death of a woman in the parking lot of a South Carolina mall last month.

News outlets reported that 28-year-old Cary Kejuan Janai Stephens has been charged with murder and possession of a gun during a violent crime. Stephens is being held in the Charleston County jail. It was not known if Stephens has an attorney yet.

Charleston police say Stephens was in the parking lot of the Citadel Mall on Feb. 26 when he got into an argument with 23-year-old Deja Katrice Dantley.

Police spokesman Charles Francis said Dantley wrecked her car after the shooting. Her body was found in the vehicle.

Police have not said what prompted the shooting.
