Couple wanted for murder in W. Va. arrested in Mission Valley

Posted: Updated:

Two murder suspects from West Virginia were arrested in the San Diego River bottom's heavy brush near Hotel Circle Friday night.

Christopher Robey, 26, and Megan Titus, 21, were arrested by San Diego police after they received a description of the wanted couple's vehicle from police in Clarksburg, West Virginia, The State Journal reported.

An SDPD officer found the car at a Hotel Circle establishment, and police used a helicopter to flush out the alleged fugitives hiding in brush along the San Diego River. Police arrested them without incident.

It is not known how long the couple have been in San Diego, but Robey was recently arrested in the Hotel Circle area on suspicion of domestic violence, The State Journal said.

San Diego police officials told the newspaper that they did not have information about the homicide case and Clarksburg police would only say that the couple is wanted for questioning.

Robey is being held in the San Diego Central Jail downtown and Titus is at Las Colinas Detention Facility. Both are being held without bail.

Police in West Virginia would not comment on the nature of their interest in Robey and Titus.
