Real estate agent slaying suspect arrested in NC

A fugitive task force has arrested a man in North Carolina being sought in the fatal shooting of an Ohio real estate agent whose body was found in a vacant home he was trying to sell.

The body of prominent real estate agent Andrew VonStein was found last week with a single gunshot wound.

Pete Elliott, U.S. Marshal for the Northern District of Ohio, said 59-year-old Robert Grigelaitis was arrested Tuesday night at a rest stop in Turkey, North Carolina, about 70 miles north of Wilmington.

Grigelaitis has addresses in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and in Ravenna in northeast Ohio, near the house where VonStein's body was found.

VonStein was the second of two real estate agents killed in a week in that region. Authorities believe the killings are unrelated.
