FAYETTEVILLE, NC (AP) -- Cumberland County authorities say a man accused of killing his girlfriend and kidnapping their 22-month-old daughter has surrendered to police in Connecticut. Sheriff's office spokeswoman Debbie Tanna says 23-year-old Alexander Zelaya was arrested Thursday morning in the town of West Haven. Tanna says Zelaya drove to a Walmart in town and asked how to find the nearest police station. Investigators say Zelaya shot and killed 22-year-old Miriam Reyes and fled Fayetteville in a stolen vehicle with their daughter, Juliana. He dropped the little girl off at a Food Lion in Newport News, VA, Wednesday. Juliana is now with her mother's parents. Zelaya is currently being held without bond pending an initial court appearance on charges of first-degree murder. It couldn't be immediately determined if he has a lawyer.
