Fitzgerald, 50, is accused of killing 47-year-old Tarae Washington, whose body was found Jan. 5 at her Pittsburgh home, according to a Pittsburgh Police Bureau news release.
He was arrested Jan. 9 on Interstate 79 near Morgantown, W. Va., which is about 75 miles from the city. Police said they were called to the Washington home shortly before 7 p.m. after family members became concerned about her because they hadn’t heard from her.
According to a criminal complaint obtained by the Pittsburgh-Post Gazette, after discovering the gruesome scene, her father called 911 and said she “had been stabbed, beyond repair and not self-inflicted.” Rescuers found the body of the handcuffed woman in the kitchen with multiple stab wounds, according to police and the outlet.
