Washington County Sheriff Larry Mincks says the man who murdered Patrick Arnold four years ago is now in custody.

A Marietta newspaper is reporting that Mark Stevens, 48, of Newport was arrested earlier today.

The Anchor reports Stevens lives just across the street from Arnold, who was shot at his home.

Mincks says Stevens was identified as the shooter by an informant who was able to record incriminating statements.

The sheriff also says Stevens has confessed to the shooting, which, according to Stevens, came after an argument and a struggle between the two men
