KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) -- Polk County Sheriff's Deputies and officers from a U.S. Marshals task force have arrested a New Jersey fugitive on homicide charges in Florida.

Raymond A. Finch was wanted in Cumberland County, N.J., for the 2007 shooting of a woman and her baby. The woman died from the shooting and the baby survived but was paralyzed.

Recently, the 34-year-old Finch was identified as the suspect and a warrant was issued for his arrest.

Authorities received information that Finch may be in the Kissimmee area.

On Wednesday Finch was arrested in Kissimmee. He has been booked into the Polk County Jail where he will await extradition to New Jersey.

It's unclear whether he has retained an attorney.
