MERRITT ISLAND, Fla. – Authorities in Florida have arrested the fiancé of a 35-year-old woman who was shot to death in her apartment.
Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey says 39-year-old Philip Keller was arrested on first-degree premeditated murder six days after 35-year-old Alicia Campitelli was found dead in Merritt Island.
Ivey says the man provided specific information related to the crime to a citizen who then called agents Thursday.
Keller tried to escape when spotted by deputies, and he jumped into a nearby creek before being taken into custody, the sheriff said in a videotaped statement.
