NORTH CAROLINA -- Police have made an arrest in the case of a murdered Herkimer County woman. Debra Castellano, 47, was found shot to death inside her car in Columbia, Maryland on May 4th.

Now, investigators say an ex-boyfriend drove one-thousand miles round trip to commit the crime.

Ryan Patrick Matthias was arrested in Charlotte, North Carolina. This is a picture of the scene from Howard County Police.

According to investigators, Castellano and Matthias were arrested after a domestic incident in March, here in New York. Castellano ended the relationship and moved to Maryland, but police say Matthias continued to stalk and harass her.

Investigators say he's being held in Charlotte right now, and will be extradited to Maryland soon to face charges. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
