A man taken into custody after he was caught in the Jeep Cherokee belonging to a slain American University professor is facing multiple charges.

Deandrew Hamlin, 18, of northwest Washington, was charged with unauthorized use of a vehicle and felony fleeing, police said. Other charges are pending.

Hamlin was apprehended late Monday after leading police on a chase in Northeast and Capitol Hill. Police spotted Sue Ann Marcum's beige 1999 Cherokee at about 11:15 p.m. and pursued it until it crashed near New Jersey Avenue and M Street in Northwest, NBC4's Jackie Bensen reported.

Police had been searching for the missing Cherokee since a friend reported finding Marcum dead in her Bethesda home at 10:52 a.m. Monday. Police described the scene as a robbery gone bad. They said there were signs of forced entry to Marcum's home and they are investigating her death as a homicide.

Marcum, 52, was the director of the MS in Accounting program at American University's Kogod School of Business. A memorial to Marcum has been put together at the school, News4's Jane Watrel reported.
