HOUSTON (AP) — Investigators say they've apprehended a Houston-area man wanted for murder after his girlfriend turned up missing and traces of blood were found at her home.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office announced Tuesday that 29-year-old Colt Morgan was taken into custody in Leon County, in East Texas.

He's accused in the Nov. 3 death of 44-year-old Wende Marshall of Cypress. Investigators have said they believe Marshall was stabbed during an argument and her body was burned at her residence, which showed signs of a cleanup. Fresh paint was on the walls. Her body has not been found.

The Houston Chronicle reports Morgan had been camping out in a storage building in the Leon County town of Buffalo, about 150 miles north of Houston.
