A man wanted for the shooting of a pregnant woman has been arrested in Rockford, Ill.

Brandon Donaldson, 22, was arrested Friday after a nearly month-long manhunt. He was recently added to TBI's Top 10 Most Wanted Fugitives list.

Deputy US marshals say they made the arrest in Rockford after the Knoxville investigation led them to an apartment complex there. Deputies say Donaldson and his brother tried to flee, but were quickly taken into custody. Donaldson's brother was also wanted for violation of probation.

Donaldson will likely face second-degree murder and attempted second-degree murder charges.

Officials say 19-year-old Marcia Crider was 13 weeks pregnant when she was shot to death on Feb. 13 in front of her mother.
