The Delaware State Police say a man has been arrested for killing an elderly woman in Lewes, Delaware.

Police say Small was driving a taxi, and picked up 78-year-old June McCarson on Thursday.

Later in the day, a Meals on Wheels worker discovered McCarson's body in her home.

Troopers found her trailer was unsecured and there were signs of a brief struggle.

The motive for the killing is unknown and the investigation is still ongoing.

Small was charged with first degree murder, possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony and robbery.
