PHOENIX — U.S. Marshals have arrested a couple in Phoenix wanted for the murder of a woman in North Carolina earlier this year, the agency said Tuesday.

Tangela Parker, 50, and Eric Parker, 62, were found around 12:30 p.m. near Deer Valley Road and 35th Avenue after being on the run and wanted since the Jan. 13 murder of Phelifia Marlow.

“Today marks six months since the tragic murder of Phelifia Marlow,” Chris Edge, acting U.S. Marshal for the Western District of North Carolina, said in a press release.

“I hope on this day, Phelifia’s family may find closure in knowing the Parkers have been apprehended and will finally answer for their crimes against a beloved North Carolinian.”

Witnesses said Marlow was shot at a furniture plant in Hickory, North Carolina, following a workplace dispute a few days prior, authorities said.

Authorities said they worked over 30 leads across eight states before discovering the couple had been residing in a Phoenix home under the alias names of Jason and Elizabeth Reardon.
