Authorities have made an arrest in a Brooke County homicide investigation.
Our news partner WTOV9.COM reports 28-year old Rocco Zuccaro of Burgettstown Pennsylvania has been arrested on a murder charge in connection with the death of 30-year-old Jason Lee Pratz.
Back in February Pratz was found dead in his home on Genteel Ridge Road in the McKinleyville area of Wellsburg. Authorities determined Pratz died from a gunshot wound the day before his body was discovered.
Zuccaro was taken into custody without incident on a murder warrant issued out of Brooke County.
At a news conference Thursday afternoon, police say they believe Zuccaro acted alone and they don't expect to arrest any other people.
Brooke County Sheriff Chuck Jackson says Zuccaro will be charged in Pennsylvania as a fugitive from justice and will await extradition back to Brooke County. Until extradition, Zuccaro will remain in the Washington County Jail.
