MARSHFIELD, Mass. (AP) — Authorities say a Massachusetts man suspected of killing his wife and then evading a police dragnet has been arrested.

The office of Plymouth District Attorney Timothy Cruz says 47-year-old Allen Warner was arrested Tuesday after turning himself into Whitman police.

Cruz identified the victim as 48-year-old Shana Warner.

Cruz says she called police shortly before 6 p.m. Monday and said she was being followed in a car by her soon-to-be ex-husband. He said officers responded immediately and found the woman in a car off the road in Marshfield with serious injuries to her face. She died at the hospital.
