Authorities in central Pennsylvania say a man wanted in a home invasion murder earlier this month has been arrested. Police say 26-year-old Hector Manuel Morales of York was taken into custody Monday afternoon in Harrisburg after a 90-minute standoff at a boarding house.

Authorities say Morales was being sought in the July 16 murder of 42-year-old Ronald Simmons Jr. who was shot six times inside his York home after struggling with an intruder.
