A Marine has been arrested on suspicion of murdering a 20-year-old sorority sister after harassing her and her friends on New Year's Eve. Cpl Eric Johnson, of Marine Aviation Weapons and Tactics Squadron-1, was arrested at his air base in Yuma, Arizona, on Tuesday morning - five days after University of North Texas student Sara Mutschlechner was fatally shot in the head as she drove three friends home from a party.
According to police, shots were fired from a black SUV that pulled up beside her as she was driving through Denton, Texas, in the early hours of New Year's Day.
Daily Mail Online understands Johnson, 20, is an administrative specialist and had been stationed at the Marine Corp Air Station in Yuma since August 12, 2013. It is unclear if he was on holiday leave. He will be detained in Yuma County Jail until he is extradited to Texas. — Daily Mail Online
