VINELAND, N.J. (WPVI) -- An arrest has been made in killing of a mother of three in Millville, New Jersey.

Donald Scurry Jr., 25, was arrested in the area of Commerce Street in Bridgeton on Wednesday, authorities said.

He is accused of killing 24-year-old Celeste Cannon. There was no immediate word on a motive.

Cannon is the sister of Vineland High School quarterback Isaih Pacheco, who was profiled on Action News earlier this week.

Teen triumphs over tragedy to inspire others. Dann Cuellar reports during Action News at 11 p.m. on September 26, 2017.

It was noted that not only had Isaih lost his sister to violence, their 30-year-old-brother, Tavarios Cannon, was stabbed to death last year.

Still, he retained a positive attitude and unshakeable work ethic.

"I'm just going to keep my head up and thank God every day for waking me up," said Pacheco.
