AIKEN, S.C. (AP/WTNH)– A man charged with killing two people in South Carolina last week has been arrested in Connecticut.

Aiken County Sheriff’s Capt. Eric Abdullah said in a news release that 20-year-old Jeremie David Tobey of Aiken was arrested by Connecticut State Police late Monday afternoon.

Connecticut State Police say troopers received information that Tobey was at the Windham Hospital in Willimantic and was taken into custody there without incident.

Tobey is charged with shooting and killing 25-year-old Cody Diminovich and 38-year-old Pamela Lawson last Friday evening. Tobey is also charged with grand larceny for taking the couple’s vehicle.

Connecticut authorities recovered the vehicle.

Tobey is awaiting extradition to South Carolina to face the charges.
