A Putnam New York woman was found dead after she was missing for 20 days.
Police say the suspect is behind bars.
They say Dwayne Pulliam was arrested in connection with the murder of 59-year-old Lori Lee Campbell.
She was found buried in a shallow grave in North Carolina.
Police believe that Pullium was selling crack-cocaine to Campbell and he was suspicious she was stealing from him.
Pulliam was arrested Thursday afternoon in the area of New Milford, Connecticut.
News 12 has learned that there may have been another person involved who helped Pullium by driving Campbell's dead body from New York to North Carolina.
The case is being prosecuted federally and Pullium is facing charges for distributing crack-cocaine and murder.
If charged, he could face life in prison.
