Feed(s): 

WTAJ reports that authorities have arrested Jonathan Beal of Meyersdale, the suspect in 19-year-old Justine Jackson's murder.

U-S Marshals picked up Beal in Marrero, Louisiana, early this morning.

Jackson's body was found by a hiker along the Great Allegheny Passage Sunday. She had disappeared in September. Police say Jackson was strangled, then buried in a shallow grave.

Family members say had Justine told them she was pregnant with Beal's child.
