ROYAL OAK, Mich. (AP) — Authorities in Michigan say police and U.S. marshals in Minnesota have arrested a 34-year-old man suspected of fatally shooting his ex-girlfriend in suburban Detroit.

The Oakland County Sheriff's Department said Thursday that the arrest came in the Nov. 25, 2010, slaying of 39-year-old Fredericka Dixon, who was found with multiple gunshot wounds at a home in Royal Oak Township.

The sheriff's department says investigators got a tip Wednesday that led to the arrest Thursday of Darius M. McCrary in St. Paul, Minn. He's now awaiting extradition on a first-degree murder charge.

It's unknown if McCrary has a lawyer. An email message asking that question was left with the sheriff's department Thursday.
