Murder suspect arrested in Pennsylvania

A drifter wanted for the murder of an Oklahoma woman is behind bars this morning.

30 year-old Bobby Joe McCauley was arrested at a truck stop in Pennsylvania. McCauley was wanted for the death of Amanda Phillips-Bateman of Chandler. Her body was found last week at a state park in Tennessee. Before she disappeared, she told her family she'd picked up a hitch-hiker. They say she gave him a ride so she could talk to him about her Christian faith.

Authorities say McCauley is schizophrenic and is known around truck stops and homeless shelters.
