CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — A man sought in the stabbing death of his twin sister has been arrested in South Carolina.

The State newspaper reported 58-year-old David B. Conditt was arrested without incident in Charleston on Monday by federal marshals and county deputies.

Haltom City Police Sgt. Eric Peters told news outlets officers found 58-year-old Dena Wright dead from multiple stab wounds early Thursday. She earlier had taken in Conditt, her twin brother, after he was homeless for a time.

Authorities who arrested Conditt in South Carolina also found Wright’s car, which authorities believe was taken after the killing.

A friend of Wright, Keli Stallings, told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram the victim talked about her brother having mental problems.

Conditt is jailed awaiting a return to Texas to face charges.
