Husband Arrested For Murder After Three Years

Authorities in North Carolina have arrested and charged a man with first-degree murder for the death of his pregnant wife, culminating a long investigation.

A spokeswoman for the Wake County Sheriff's Department said deputies and FBI agents arrested Jason Young on Monday after a three-year-long investigation into the beating death of Young's 29-year-old wife in their suburban Raleigh home in November 2006. The couple's then-2-year-old daughter was found in the home unharmed.

Authorities arrested Young in Brevard, a town in southwestern North Carolina. He is being transported to Wake County where he'll be detained.

Authorities have previously said Young refused to cooperate in the investigation into wife Michelle Young's murder. Earlier this year, a judge in civil court ordered Young to pay $15 million in damages for her death.
