CUMBERLAND COUNTY — An anoymous tip has led police to a man wanted for the murder of an elderly Fayetteville woman.
Fayetteville investigators arrested Lester Tyler Webster, 41, at a home on Ridge Road in Cumberland County Sunday. Police say he was hiding in the garage.
Webster is accused of killing 72-year-old Teiko Johnson.
Investigators say Webster did yard work around Johnson's home.
Johnson's body was discovered by a co-worker last week, after she did not show up for work.
Webster faces several charges, including first degree murder.
