MONCTON, N.B. - A New Brunswick murder suspect known for altering her appearance has been arrested after more than two months as a fugitive.
RCMP said they arrested Marissa Shephard at 12:30 Tuesday in Moncton.
The 20-year-old was wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for first degree murder and arson, in the violent death of Baylee Wylie on Dec. 17, whose body was found by firefighters in a burned-out triplex in Moncton.
Family members said they believed Shephard was likely dead.
Police said she was considered dangerous due to the violent nature of the crime.
Three other young people had earlier been arrested and charged with the crime.
