    A man wanted in the slaying of a D.C. woman last month has been found in Charlotte.

    Michael Gayle was wanted for the death of 31-year-old Eboni Domally. Domally was found stabbed to death inside her Southeast home June 29, police said.

    "She was a good girl, she spoke to everybody," an acquaintance told News4's Shomari Stone. 

    Neighbor's told Stone Domally and Gayle got into a fight prior to her death because he allegedly refused to help her mow the lawn, and later because he refused to pay some bills.

    Following Domally's death, D.C. police chief Cathy Lanier adressed the surge in domestic violence-related deaths of women in the city.

    "A horrific case. We had children in the home at the time of the homicide, so the trauma the children will live with for the rest of their lives is... hard to imagine," Lanier said. "We're really trying to raise awareness. If there are people in abusive relationships, they gotta get out. Violent relationships where there's abuse, especially physical abuse, can so quickly turn deadly."

    Gayle was arrested Tuesday morning by U.S. marshals and Charlotte-Mecklenburg police. He was booked into Mecklenburg County Jail.
