— A man wanted for a murder in Virginia was arrested Tuesday by Wake County deputies

Lamar Maurice Camper, of Roanoke City, is charged with first-degree murder, according to indictment documents from Virginia. The indictment says Camper killed Brittany Adair Kasey-Freeny on May 1.

Authorities said Kasey-Freeny was reported missing after her two children were found unattended last month. Kasey-Freeny was reportedly last seen with Camper.

Camper was arrested in April in Wake County for burning property after a 911 call on May 3 said a car was being burned in a parking lot on Cooper Road in Raleigh.

Tuesday, while in jail, he was served with an extradition warrant connected to the Virginia murder.

It is unclear when Camper will be sent back to Virginia.
