The Modesto-area California Highway Patrol said Dylan Colby Moyle was arrested in the Manteca area just after 3 p.m. Wednesday. He was seen driving a 2006 Jeep SUV in the area. Moyle was booked into the San Joaquin County Jail on a charge of murder.

Sonora-area CHP said the body of 42-year-old Matthew Winks of Jamestown was found near the intersection of Fifth Avenue and 7th Street in Jamestown on Oct. 3. Investigators say Winks was hit by a white 1998 Ford F-150. Officers say a week before the incident, there was another attempt to run over Mr. Winks.

Investigators identified Moyle as a person of interest last week and obtained a Ramey Warrant for his arrest.
