NEW ORLEANS -- United States Marshals have arrested a man wanted for a Georgia triple murder in September.

On Sept. 15, Robert Bell, 33, allegedly shot and killed 34-year-old Angelina Benton, her 12-year-old son Joseph McDonald, and 19-year-old Raymond Daniel. A fourth person, 23-year-old Justin Cato, was also shot.

According to the U.S. Marshals, Bell met Benton during church and asked for a place to stay for him and his wife. After the murders took place, Marshals found Bell's vehicle and an AR-15 rifle that may have been the murder weapon.

Bell managed to flee to New Orleans, where he was arrested Thursday in the 1800 block of Gravier Street. Marshals were tipped off by reports that Bell was in the area and linked to the homeless scene. He had allegedly been visiting a homeless shelter on Gravier Street.
