Prince George's County police said a suspect in a Hillcrest Heights slaying has been arrested in North Carolina.

 
Officers said 23-year-old Joshua Jones of Landover was arrested Tuesday in Fayetteville, N.C. He is awaiting extradition to Maryland, where he will face first-degree murder charges in the death of 22-year-old Jerome Peters.

 
Peters was caring for his young child at a relative's home in Hillcrest Heights on June 30 when the child's mother arrived along with Jones to pick up the child. The two men argued, and Jones shot Peters, police said.
