FAYETTEVILLE, N.C., July 1 (UPI) — A woman who was placed on the FBI’s “Most Wanted” list just this week for the death of a pregnant woman and her unborn baby was captured Friday, federal authorities said.

Authorities had been searching for Shanika Minor since March, when a 23-year-old Wisconsin woman was killed. Officials said Minor was the killer and the victim was a former acquaintance.

Two days after she was put on the bureau’s “Most Wanted” list, Minor, 24, was captured Friday morning in Fayetteville, N.C. A tipster called the FBI to report Minor was staying at a motel near the airport there.

According to investigators, Minor shot and killed Tamecca Perry on March 6 over an argument about loud music. Perry, officials said, was a neighbor of Minor’s mother and a former high school classmate.

Wednesday, Minor was placed on the FBI list with the offer of $100,000 for information leading to her capture.

Minor faces two counts of first-degree murder for Perry and her unborn child, who was due March 11.
