A man accused of killing his estranged wife's boyfriend in south-central Pennsylvania in front of her and their children is behind bars after a daylong hunt. Police say 33-year-old Ricky Miller of Gap, Lancaster County, shot 26-year-old Kenneth Geiger III on Sunday. It happened in a sport utility vehicle in front of Geiger's home in Hamden Township, Cumberland County.

Police say Miller's estranged wife, Ashley Miller, and their three children were in the vehicle at the time.

Miller was captured Monday night after he apparently fell 15 feet from an oil storage tank in Hampden Township during heavy rain.

Cumberland County District Attorney David Freed says Miller wasn't armed.
