Fleming was located a few days later in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and arrested.

Investigators say Fleming and Warren are both from the Cleveland, Ohio area and had been living in Central Florida for several months before the shooting.

Police say they believe Warren’s body had been in the parking lot since May 15 but was not found until two days later.

At the time, investigators said that the way Warren was sitting in the car, and the fact that there were no obvious signs of injury, made it easy for people to pass by without taking a second look.

Warren has been in the Volusia County Jail after being transferred from Tennessee and is being held on no bond.

Warren’s next court appearance is scheduled for July 20 in DeLand.
