Police arrest suspect in murder of missing Wilmington woman

    Wilmington Police have made an arrest in connection with the disappearance of a woman yesterday morning.

    Marsha Lee never returned from walking her dog Monday, but police were able to link her husband’s account of her whereabouts with witness reports of an abduction at Lowell Road and Matson Run Parkway. Lee’s body was found Monday afternoon.

    Dwight Smith has been charged with murder and is being held in Wilmington’s Young Prison.
