MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) - A man and woman wanted in a death in Virginia have been arrested in South Carolina.

The Horry County police department said 37-year-old Sean Patrick Stocks and 29-year-old Pauline S. Turner are charged with first degree murder, robbery and grand larceny.

Sgt. Robert Kegler said the suspects were arrested Monday night and are awaiting extradition to Greensville County, Va.

The Greensville County Sheriff's office told an Horry County Detective assigned to the U.S. Marshal Task Force that Stocks and Turner fled after the May 9 killing and might be in the Myrtle Beach area.

Kegler says they were arrested without incident.
